TWO of Australia’s most prestigious law firms have banned a workplace gossip website after it published a series of articles criticising management and mocking staff.

Both Mallesons Stephen Jaques and Clayton Utz have barred the Firm Spy site, branding it “irresponsible and inaccurate”.

Update May 2, 2011: Firm Spy reports that Mallesons Stephen Jaques have now allowed staff access to their site again. This was confirmed by Sue Ashe, head of communications at Mallesons Stephen Jaques.
