Multiple large law firms in the United States are facing discrimination lawsuits brought on by former employees. These same firms are defending corporations across the country against discrimination lawsuits at the same time. The list is long and includes Venable, Patton Boggs and many others.
A former paralegal from Kenya filed a lawsuit against Venable that was settled in the month of June. The paralegal claimed that leaders at the firm treated her poorly and then fired her later because of her national origin. A former business development manager working in the Washington office filed a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment against Patton Boggs.
District firm James E. Brown & Associates were sued in February for pregnancy discrimination by attorney Zorayda J. Moreira-Smith. She said the firm rescinded her job offer illegally not long after she informed the firm that she was pregnant. In April, the law firm of Kelley Drye & Warren settled an age discrimination lawsuit with a former partner. The former partner, Eugene D’Ablemont, sued the firm back in 2010 claiming that its policy of de-equitizing partners after the age of 70 was age discrimination. The firm agreed to pay D’Ablemont $574,000 in the settlement and ended its policy in 2010.
