LONDON, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- A senior lawyer at a London law firm was forced to stop publishing her erotic literary works online due to company rules, a spokesman says.

While an unidentified Allen & Overy spokesman would not directly comment on the action taken against associate Deidre Dare and her Web-published novel "Expat," he did say the law firm had strict rules about employee conduct, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

"A&O does not comment on individual members of staff. With regard to our general policies on staff conduct Allen & Overy aims to uphold the highest standards of professional conduct," the spokesman said.

Dare recently said on her personal Web site, deidredare.com, that she was forced to stop offering new installments of her racy Internet novel.

"The author has been forbidden from publishing further chapters of Expat for the time being," she said online. "She will resume if and when she is permitted to."

The Telegraph said "Expat" tells the erotic tales of a woman living in Moscow who enjoys numerous sexual rendezvous with various men in each installment.
