Former Sullivan & Cromwell partner Carlos Spinelli-Noseda has resigned from the New York bar for billing his clients and firm more than $500,000 in fraudulent expenses. A state court of appeal accepted his resignation Tuesday. Spinelli-Noseda, a banking and finance specialist who was facing a disciplinary probe, admitted to claiming personal meals and lodging as business development expenses, and to sometimes expensing lower-priced airline seats as first-class flights and pocketing the difference.
