McVeagh partner resigns
A partner at national law firm Russell McVeagh has resigned after an independent investigation into complaints about inappropriate comments made while drunk. Board chairman Malcolm Crotty said after a thorough investigation, which upheld the complaint, the partner apologised and quit. ‘‘We are deeply disappointed in the partner at the centre of the investigation,’’ Crotty said. ‘‘Our firm is committed to changing the culture of our organisation and we all recognise that change requires collective and long-term commitment.’’ The firm revealed late last month a partner was under investigation after a complaint of inappropriate comments at a client event.
