A Manhattan appellate court Thursday revived claims against Winston & Strawn by a former rainmaking partner who alleged the law firm subjected him to "decompression," a firm policy sharply reducing his pay after age 65, in violation of a special compensation agreement. The unusual suit has drawn much attention to the issue of how firms handle aging rainmakers, many more of whom are now challenging firm policies that envision retirement at age 65 or earlier.
