Raptor police tackle NSW bikie conflict

Thirteen alleged outlaw motorcycle gang members have been charged after raids in the NSW Hunter region with a specialist police squad staying in town to stop what's being called the biggest bikie conflict in NSW.

Thirty-one properties, from Muswellbrook to Newcastle, were targeted in Thursday's large-scale sting involving more than 280 police officers cracking down on the escalating conflict between rival gangs - the Finks and the Nomads.

Weapons, explosive detonators, guns, drugs and reptiles were seized, while 11 of those arrested were charged with participating in a criminal group and two were charged with drug offences.

Strikeforce Raptor, the squad of officers most reviled by the OMCG underworld, will remain in the region to support local police until the conflict ends.

Law firm Stanton Grant Legal taken over by authorities after bikie 'money laundering' raids

A Melbourne law firm raided by the Victoria Police anti-bikie taskforce last week has been seized from its partners and placed in the hands of a manager chosen by the legal regulator.

South Melbourne firm Stanton Grant Legal was one of dozens of homes and businesses raided as part of an investigation into alleged money laundering by the Comacheros outlaw motorcycle gang.

The Legal Services Board has now appointed Howard Rapke, a managing partner at the law firm Holding Redlich, as manager of Stanton Grant Legal, giving him control of the day-to-day running of the firm.

Mr Rapke confirmed the appointment, but told the ABC he could not comment on why the board had installed him and how long he would have control of the practice.

The board can install a manager if it feels the interests of a firm's clients need safeguarding.
