Proskauer Rose on Wednesday hit back at an amended $50 million gender discrimination complaint from Washington, D.C., partner Connie Bertram, disputing the suit’s depiction of how her business stacks up against peers and presenting a different portrayal of events that Bertram pointed to as examples of alleged mistreatment and retaliation.

The law firm filed an answer to Bertram’s amended complaint in Washington federal court late Wednesday, denying the labor and employment partner’s allegations that gender bias led to her receiving unfair pay.

Proskauer’s response comes after Bertram lodged the amended complaint on April 25, adding new claims and revealing her identity for the first time since filing the initial suit in May 2017. Previously, the suit was proceeding with a Jane Doe plaintiff. At Proskauer, Bertram has served as co-head of the whistleblowing and retaliation group, and head of the government contractor compliance group.
