Mishcon de Reya litigation partner Paula Feldman has resigned from the firm after 11 years' service, before the conclusion of a grievance procedure she had initiated.
Feldman is currently helping the Press Association with legal work while she looks for a new position.
A Mishcons' spokeswoman said: “Feldman made the decision to leave before the investigation of a grievance raised by her was concluded. We regret her decision. Had she stayed, we feel sure we would have been able to work something out.”
Feldman is the latest of a string of lawyers to leave the firm recently, including commercial partner James Millet, top biller banking partner Stephen Davis and employment barrister Gillian Howard.
