    Business
    Outcome:
    $1.5 Million
    Description:
    Klein & Wilson represented a City against its former City Attorney for legal malpractice arising out of the City Attorney's failure to identify and resolve a conflict of interest. The conflict of interest sparked negative media attention, a public audit, and a criminal prosecution. Ultimately, the City was forced to reimburse funds spent on a public project. When Klein & Wilson substituted into the case, the former City Attorney refused to offer a penny to resolve the case. After Klein & Wilson evaluated the case and presented the former City Attorney with facts showing it had substantial exposure at trial, Klein & Wilson was successful in resolving the case for $1.5 million without taking a single deposition.
  • Doe Law Firm v. Roe Corporation (Case Confidential)

    Practice Area:
    Business
    Outcome:
    $1.3 million
    Description:
    Klein & Wilson represented a client who was sued for approximately $800,000 in unpaid fees by its former law firm and the law firm's expert in the underlying case. Klein & Wilson filed a cross-complaint against the law firm, alleging legal malpractice. Klein & Wilson won approximately 20 different motions and persuaded the court to issue almost $150,000 in sanctions against the law firm for various discovery abuses. Before trial started, Klein & Wilson persuaded the court that the law firm likely committed fraud, resulting in an order entitling Klein & Wilson to conduct discovery regarding the net worth of the firm and its members. After one day of trial, the expert voluntarily dismissed its complaint and received no money. The law firm also dismissed its complaint without receiving a penny, and it paid Klein & Wilson's client $1.3 million to settle the legal malpractice claim.
