Clifford Chance secretary convicted of fraud

February 7, 2011 A former Clifford Chance secretary has been convicted of fraud for stealing over £23,000 from the firm. Judie Groom was the secretary to two construction partners at the firm between 2007 and 2009, and has been sentenced to 15 month in prison for using corporate credit cards to purchase clothes, holidays and foreign cash.

A spokeswoman for Clifford Chance said that "Jodie Groom's frauds were detected via our own internal checks" and "since then, Clifford Chance has made a number of changes to its internal expenses procedures".
