Allen & Overy partner Mark Mansell has been called to appear before a parliamentary committee in the U.K. this week, after it was revealed that the firm played a role in a settlement over claims of sexual harassment made against disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

The 11-member committee, called the Women and Equalities Committee, is investigating the use of nondisclosure agreements relating to allegations of sexual harassment in the workplace. It is chaired by Maria Miller, a British Conservative Party politician who has been a member of Parliament since 2005.
