Legal Malpractice Defense

BLF attorney Richard L. Bazelon represented a large law firm and one of its senior lawyers in a legal malpractice action brought by the law firm's former client following an unsuccessful trial.

The prior action had survived successive motions for summary judgment based on substantial constitutional defenses. In the malpractice action, BLF, on behalf of the law firm, asserted a counterclaim for unpaid fees. After extensive depositions and discovery established that the malpractice case was meritless, the claims were voluntarily withdrawn with prejudice, and the client's counterclaim for unpaid fees was satisfied in full.
