Russell McVeagh to review its alcohol policy

The Auckland law firm has announced the move as part of its review into the firm's culture.


Russell McVeagh is to review its alcohol policy as part of its review of the business following sexual harassment claims. The New Zealand law firm has been in the eye of the storm since media revelations over the alleged abuse of young female law clerks. Russell McVeagh spokeswoman Joanna Comerford said that in light of current circumstances and as part of the external review recently announced by the firm, 'we will be reviewing our alcohol policy.'
