Quinn dismisses London partner for inappropriate conduct
Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan has chosen to dismiss London partner Mark Hastings without compensation on grounds of inappropriate behavior.
Mishcon de Reya partner Alison Levitt QC conducted the firm’s internal investigation, concluding that the allegations from two Quinn staff members were sufficient for the immediate removal of Hastings from the firm.
Hastings’ career began at Herbert Smith Freehills in 2002. Three years later he was hired by Addleshaw Goddard, the firm at which he made partner. A decade later in late 2016 he joined Quinn.
