Whistleblowing case could set precedent for partners

PUBLISHED January 21, 2014

A hearing in the Supreme Court scheduled for 24 March could set a precedent to allow partners protection under whistleblowing laws.

The hearing is between international firm Clyde & Co and former partner Krista Bates van Winkelhof, who alleges she was sacked by the firm in 2011 after making allegations against the managing partner of the firm's Tanzanian operation.
