Martin & Co secure £80,000 in age discrimination case

Martin & Co recently secured £80,000 for a man of 60 who was made redundant. We managed to show that he was selected for redundancy because of his age, which amounts to age discrimination.

Our client, a Manchester  man, had cover under his home insurance policy to pay his legal fees, but the insurance company initially insisted that he use their nominated solicitor in Hampshire. However, he lost faith in them when they recommended that he accept an offer of  £10,000. At that stage he insisted that they appoint Martin & Co, which he was entitled to do under European law, and the rest is history.

The important message is that people who benefit from legal expenses insurance, can stand up to the insurance company, and insist on the lawyer of their choice.
