A former Kaye Scholer associate who was hired to support business development has sued the law firm, alleging at least $21 million in damages, claiming she was treated differently because of her gender, her sexual orientation and her advocacy in the LGBT community.

Bari Zahn, in Zahn v. Kaye Scholer, 152625-2015, claims that her job duties as a senior associate were to develop business across all practice areas. According to the complaint, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Zahn met or exceeded her business development goals, bringing in close to $2 million in revenue and millions of dollars in future work to Kaye Scholer from clients she developed and originated, including Kenneth Cole, Toyota Financial Services and Merisant.
