Ropes Settles Age Discrimination Suit with Ex-Partner

May 20, 2013

Ropes & Gray has settled a discrimination suit by a former partner who claimed management routinely passed her clients off to younger male partners and unfairly pushed her out of the firm. In a one-page stipulation, Ropes and Patricia Martone agreed that all claims and counterclaims "are hereby withdrawn" and "dismissed in their entirety, with prejudice," with neither side having to pay the other's attorney fees.
