“What legitimate social policy could justify retiring a partner or employee?
The Supreme Court will decide after Clarkson Wright & Jakes partner Leslie Seldon was given permission to fight his former firm over its decision to retire him at the age of 65.
Seldon argues that his firm was wrong to enact the partnership agreement and retire him because, he claims, it could not justify the action.”
