A former associate at Clifford Chance has sued the firm for discrimination, claiming the London-based firm targeted women and minorities when it laid off six associates in November 2007 (NYLJ, Nov. 6, 2007).

In a complaint filed Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court, Karen Ramdhanie said that on the eve of the layoffs, two white male associates were transferred out of her group, leaving just black lawyers and women to be laid off.
