Time’s up for powerful law partner accused of sexual harassment and misconduct

The powerful man at the centre of a workplace harassment scandal that has rocked mega-firm Herbert Smith Freehills this month is understood to be the firm’s Asia-Pacific regional head for its projects practice, Peter Paradise (pictured).

It is believed that at least two female employees at HSF came forward to make misconduct allegations against Mr Paradise, who has brokered some of the biggest business deals in Australia on behalf of clients including state government departments, Lend Lease Building and AGL Energy.

Mr Paradise is also a serving Sydney FC board director, and in that capacity has provided advice to the other five board directors on relevant legal matters for a number of years.
