A 53-year-old solicitor who took action against top-100 firm Foot Anstey for alleged age discrimination has lost his case. 

After a six-day hearing in May, the Cardiff Employment Tribunal ruled that Tracy Fennell’s claim was not well founded. Fennell, who was represented by south-west firm Kitsons, was with Foot Anstey for almost three years and led its corporate transaction team in Bristol.

A spokesman for Kitsons said it is ‘considering the position with counsel and with our client’. A spokesman for Foot Anstey said: ‘We are pleased that the case has now concluded with Foot Anstey successfully defending its position.’
