  • Surely when the parties are on an equal footing such as in the case of sel-employed equity partners such as in this case, a retirement age should be based on private business needs and not social policy particularly given that there is no default retirement age for partners within the age discrimination act.

  • Seems fairly typical of the crop of partners these days.. Desperately hanging onto their equity and allowing the ranks of associates and salaried partners to swell.
    The world has moved on and it's about time these people recognised that. If this guy was still raking in massive amounts of money then I highly the firm would try and get rid of him. More likely he was plodding along thinking that with equity he was untouchable while handing down on the work and long hours to associates who he had no intention to promote.
