50+ Successful Solo Practitioner Wants to Join Law Firm

Question:
I am a 53-year-old corporate lawyer who graduated from a top law school and has over 25 years of experience as a sole practitioner. I have handled large clients and very sophisticated deals. I am tired of the administrative responsibility of running my own shop, but I'm not ready to retire. I've talked to a number of recruiters, but none are willing to represent me to a firm. I'm not ready to be ''put out to pasture,'' and I consider this age discrimination. What should I do?
