Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has won its high-profile age discrimination battle against former partner Peter Bloxham. The Central London Employment Tribunal found that Freshfields had been discriminatory on the grounds of age when new pensions provisions were introduced, but that, crucially, it had been balanced in its approach when making the changes. The judgment is the first major partnership case brought under new age discrimination laws introduced in the United Kingdom last year.
