By on August 15, 2018 in Employment, Law Firm Management

Bloomberg Law is reporting that a law partner who sued her firm, Proskauer Rose, for $50 million over allegations of gender discrimination and unequal pay has settled the case.

Details of the settlement between Connie Bertram and the firm weren’t disclosed.

Bertram, who headed the firm’s labor practice in Washington, sued last year, alleging she was underpaid in relation to her male colleagues and that she was excluded from projects after complaining about it, writes Stephanie Russell-Kraft.

Bertram has remained at the firm since filing the lawsuit in May 2017.
