Allen & Overy (A&O) partner Mark Mansell has been called to appear before the Women and Equalities Committee this week, after the revelation of the firm’s historic role in a settlement over claims of sexual harassment made against disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

The magic circle firm was brought in to advise Miramax, which Weinstein co-founded, when the producer’s then-assistant Zelda Perkins accused him of sexual harassment in 1998.
