A settlement was agreed on Monday between Melish and the Magic Circle law firm, Mellish has agreed to destroy the confidential information, and further agreed not to disclose certain information.

A spokesperson for Linklaters said, “We can confirm that the court has approved an order reached by agreement which, in effect, makes the previous order final and brings these proceedings to an end.

“We did not take the decision to apply for an injunction lightly. We have a strong, supportive workplace culture and everyone working with us should be able to rely on information shared confidentially with the firm remaining confidential.”
