KPMG Christchurch's defection to Ernst & Young hits the High Court in New Zealand

KPMG in New Zealand has launched legal action against a former partner who
joined Ernst & Young a month ago.

Former KPMG partner Bruce Gemmell joined E&Y along with four partners and
80 other staff, which appeared to effectively end KPMG’s presence in
Christchurch.

Gemmell and KPMG are due to appear in the High Court in Auckland, reported

Other defendants are also understood to be involved.

After the defection KPMG moved to appoint a new managing partner for the
city, where staff were asked to stay on.
