Maybe it should go without saying: If your workforce mostly consists of lawyers, watch out for lawsuits.
A former partner at Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell has filed a lawsuit accusing the law firm of breaching his employment contract, violating the labor code, fraud, negligent misrepresentation and libel and slander.
Robert S. Crowder’s suit states that when two firms merged in 2007 to create Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell, partners in the former firms were required to make capital contributions. In Crowder’s case, that amounted to $50,000, an amount he was allowed to pay via a loan.
He says he was assured that the firm would pay interest on the loan for the first two years. Crowder claims the firm told him it would return that capital directly to the bank if he left the firm within two years.
However, when Crowder resigned in September 2008, he claims the interest went unpaid. His suit seeks to recover that money.
