Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has dropped its costs claim against former partner Peter Bloxham, following his announcement Wednesday that he will not appeal an age discrimination ruling acquitting the Magic Circle firm.

Freshfields responded to Bloxham’s statement that he would not be taking his case further by saying: “In order to put this matter behind us, the firm will not be pursuing the claim to recover a portion of its costs, which we had to register by [Nov. 10] to reserve our position.”
