Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

Thank you for your question.
There are steps you can take in court to prevent this type of harassment. They are expensive but in my experience, and I have dealt with several similar cases for professionals such as you, a letter from a solicitor usually stops this behaviour without having to go to court especially when the other person is told that costs will be sought against them.
In addition any allegations which are untrue can be treated as defamatory and again are actionable.
I would suggest that you see a solicitor and ask that a letter is written to this person in suitable terms and that typically will be an end of matters.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
