Russell McVeagh is dealing with more issues involving inappropriate behaviour following a ‘recent event’, with one staffer having resigned already and with one man having been removed from the firm’s website.

The firm has not commented publicly on the matter and it is unknown whether the Law Society is formally involved.
It is the last reminder Russell McVeagh needs regarding inappropriate sexual or other behaviour following the 2021 finding against former partner James Gardner-Hopkins, who was found guilty of six charges of misconduct that took place during the 2015-16 summer.
This case is allegedly one that helped spark the #MeToo movement in New Zealand when it was reported in 2018.
