A senior solicitor was fired from two firms in connection with threats he made to his ex-girlfriend, RollOnFriday understands.
'Sacko', whom RollOnFriday is not identifying, has enjoyed a lucrative career working at multiple top firms in London.
But his many moves were not entirely by choice, according to two sources. As an associate he was fired from Latham & Watkins after he received a police caution for threatening his ex, according to an insider.
Coincidentally, Latham's Managing Partner was also forced to resign from the firm for intimidating a woman. Bill Voge threatened the wife of a man he met through a Christian men's group with prison if she went public with sexually explicit messages he sent her.
Unlike Voge's redeemer, Sacko eschewed a period in the wilderness and moved immediately to another firm's City office. But he did not disclose the caution and when the firm found out, it also fired him, RollOnFriday understands. Coincidentally, that firm has also been accused of treating women poorly.
Sacko is now at a new firm, which has not been afflicted with (many) stories of sexual malpractice. However, given the Curse of Sacko, it probably won't be long.
Sacko said elements of the account put to him were untrue, but refused to say which. His former firms declined to comment. RollOnFriday has not approached his current firm.
