Another Legal Malpractice Case Proceeds Against “Big Law”

In New York, a legal malpractice lawsuit is proceeding against mega-firm Paul Hastings. In the suit, an investor hired attorneys from the firm to conduct the due diligence in a $3 million investment.  The is now suing alleging that the firm committed legal malpractice by failing to ensure that the investor obtained all the mineral rights he understood he was receiving in the deal and for failing to ensure that other assets that secured the transaction were not encumbered.

We had a similar case several years ago against a local law firm.  An associate in the law firm failed to properly perfect the plaintiff’s security interest in the collateral securing the transaction.  The remarkable thing about the case was that the lawyer admitted he had made a mistake and actually referred the client to us.  Much to the chagrin of his carrier, he was very cooperative with us in making sure that his client was protected.
