An independent review has found the law firm Russell McVeagh handled sexual misconduct allegations against them poorly when they arose in 2015 and 2016, and that these failures had serious consequences for the people involved.

Among the allegations were that a partner groped and kissed four female student summer clerks at a Christmas party in December 2015.

Dame Margaret Bazley conducted the review and released her findings today.

RNZ reporter Ann-Marie May talks to Lynn from the news conference where the report was released.
