Ex-Sullivan partner quits Bar over billing fraud
A former Sullivan & Cromwell partner has resigned from the New York Bar for billing his clients and firm more than $500,000 (£270,000) in fraudulent travel and entertainment expenses, reports the New York Law Journal. Carlos Spinelli-Noseda, a banking and finance specialist who joined Sullivan in 1994 and became a partner in 2003, is facing a disciplinary investigation over a pattern of improper billing dating from July 1998 to February 2008.In a 3 June affidavit of resignation, Spinelli-Noseda admitted he could not successfully defend himself against charges of professional misconduct. Such resignations are frequently tendered when further proceedings are almost certain to lead to disbarment.
