Joanna Chatterton, Head of the Employment Law team, and Sona Ganatra, co-Head of the Financial Services team and Investigations practice lead at Fox Williams LLP, conducted a second independent fact-finding investigation on behalf of the CBI following the allegations reported by The Guardian in early April.
This investigation was conducted within strict parameters agreed with the City of London Police, to avoid prejudicing any possible criminal investigations. It therefore focused on whether the CBI’s leadership was aware of any of the allegations before the recent reporting and if so, what steps they took or failed to take in response.
The conclusions of our independent fact-finding investigation, together with our recommendations, have been reported to the CBI board. The CBI has announced that it will be implementing these recommendations in full.
