Russell McVeagh partner quits after complaints upheld

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 12 October 2018

The law firm Russell McVeagh has lost one of its partners, after an independent investigation upheld complaints about the man's drunken behaviour at a client function. Yesterday the law firm's board chair Malcolm Crotty confirmed a partner - who isn't named - had resigned. The firm, which provides services to the government, has been in damage control because of serious allegations of sexual misconduct by senior lawyers in 2015 and 2016.
