A Prominent Dallas Attorney
Client Issue: A prominent Dallas attorney served as outside counsel and on the board of directors for a privately traded company that ultimately filed bankruptcy. The plaintiff’s bankruptcy trustee sought over $27 million from the lawyer and his firm, claiming that the lawyer breached his fiduciary duty and had a conflict of interest resulting from his various roles with, and investment in, the company.
Approach: Given our breadth of experience with D&O and attorney liability claims, as well as bankruptcy proceedings, we were able to navigate the various courts, claims, and insurance policies to successfully defend the case.
Outcome: We first successfully moved to withdraw the reference to bankruptcy court so that the client could have the opportunity for a jury trial in federal district court. We then filed and won a motion to dismiss based on statute of limitations.
