Hogan Lovells has suspended a partner in its London office for watching an adult video at work, with the firm reviewing its internet access policy as a result.

The partner was seen by an Irwin Mitchell lawyer across the street in that firm’s London office, which is next door to Hogan Lovells’ Atlantic House base.

The Irwin Mitchell lawyer filmed the partner’s behavior on their mobile phone, according to RollonFriday, and reported the incident to Hogan Lovells’ human resources team.

The partner in question has now been suspended and the firm has begun an internal investigation into the episode.

“We were made aware of an individual in our office misusing their computer to watch adult material,” a Hogan Lovells spokesperson said. “Such behavior is unacceptable and we have suspended them pending a full internal investigation.”
