Chadbourne & Parke, now part of Norton Rose Fulbright, issued a remarkably conciliatory statement Thursday regarding former partner Kerrie Campbell, the firm’s chief adversary in heated gender pay discrimination litigation that formally ended in a settlement this week.

“Through the litigation process, Ms. Campbell contributed to important ongoing dialogue within the profession about gender issues. Chadbourne hopes and expects that Ms. Campbell will be successful in her future professional endeavors,” said a Chadbourne statement emailed to ALM on Thursday, adding the firm and Campbell “are pleased that they have amicably resolved the pending lawsuit and put their differences behind them.”
