Greenberg Traurig Maher employment dispute with former partner settles

The dispute between Greenberg Traurig Maher (GTM) and former equity capital markets partner Andrew Croxford has settled just two weeks before it was due to be heard at the London Central Employment Tribunal.

Croxford, who left GTM last year having joined in 2009, originally filed a claim on 16 February. He alleged unfair dismissal, disability discrimination, Wages Act and public interest disclosure, and instructed Susanne Foster, senior associate at CIty employmet boutique CM Murray.

In June, The Lawyer reported that the dispute had moved up a gear, with both sides instructing counsel (see story).

GTM, which had instructed Herbert Smith employment partner Andrew Taggart, retained Tom Linden QC of Matrix Chambers, with Akhlaq Choudhury of 11 KBW drafted in for Croxford.

GTM and CM Murray declined to comment. Croxford could not be reached for comment.
