The article presents an interview with James Pinder, head of fraud at Silverbeck Rymer. His first job was as clerk at Lancashire County Council. His worst experience was his first appearance before a judge which was supposed to be in chambers, but for which he ended up fully robed in open court. He said that he would have become a gamekeeper if he was not a lawyer. His mentor was Tony Proctor, a first rate registrar who later became a first rate judge. According to him, the best part of his job is beating fraudulent claimants.
