Clarification

On page 3 of last week’s issue of The Lawyer we published a story about US law firm Debevoise & Plimpton suing solicitor Joan Leopold.

Recruitment consultancy Taylor Root has asked us to point out that it was not involved in a confidential ­investigation Leopold was carrying out for the firm.

The recruiter was only involved in the matter because it carried out the job
search that placed Leopold with Debevoise.
