Multiple Law Firms Jointly Representing a Single Client
Represented an international law firm in litigation concerning legal and ethical considerations that arise when two law firms jointly represent a single client in a contingent fee matter. At issue was the meaning of a written contract describing the division of a fee recovery between the two firms. We obtained a multi-million dollar judgment for our client. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed that judgment and addressed rules of professional conduct and the law governing lawyers.
