Anyone have any noteworthy experiences (for better or worse) as an associate at Fox Rothschild in their NYC or Philly offices?

Fishbowl friends - I have a recurring issue with a high rank male colleague. Anyone outside of his core team, he verbally harasses and says the most insane things. I’ve noticed it’s usually towards women with a lower rank, not just me. If I ever acted in his manner, I probably would have gotten fired long ago. He brings new business, so he’s pretty much untouchable. WWYD? Should I start sending this to HR?
