Dentons US has urged the Ohio Supreme Court to overturn a $32 million malpractice decision against a former corporate client, which the global law company claims will pose “severe dangers” to the legal profession if allowed to stand.
Dentons challenges appeals court ruling that bars firm’s U.S. arm from representing clients.
The Ohio Supreme Court will decide whether or not to accept Dentons’ appeal. Ex-client RevoLaze claims the disqualification cost it millions of dollars in patent-related litigation.
An appeals court ruled the firm failed to disclose conflicts tied to its counterpart Dentons Canada.
