UBS was told by an employment tribunal it could not use legal privilege to keep private the findings of an inquiry into how it handled an alleged rape. In a 2019 ruling seen by the Financial Times this week, a judge told UBS it could not rely on legal privilege because law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer had been hired to conduct an independent inquiry into how HR had responded, rather than in the capacity of legal adviser to the bank. UBS appointed Freshfields partner Caroline Stroud in 2018 to conduct an investigation into the way the bank handled a former employee’s allegation that she was raped by a colleague nearly 20 years her senior.
