An Orrick associate is leaving the Munich office after complaining she had been groped by a partner.
The matter has been taken so seriously by the firm that it has been kicked up to Orrick's global team in the US for investigation.
The circumstances of the associate leaving Orrick are not yet known, although it is understood that she is still currently working at the firm.
"We take any report of harassment seriously – this is fundamental to our culture and values," said an Orrick spokeswoman. "We are conducting a thorough review and will respond appropriately."
