You get another lawyer to sue them, is how. After what Regal Real Estate is calling a “breach of its contractual duties and ethics,” they’re suing international law firm Crowell & Moring for damages amounting to no less than $6M, after Crowell & Moring failed to return the $3,074,734.25 they were holding in an escrow account for Regal Real Estate (which is, Regal contends, part of a total sum of around $5.5M Crowell’s supposed to be holding onto for them that’s missing).
As noted earlier, this is after one of their lawyers pulled off one of the lamest anti-heists in the history of embezzlement. Question is, Crowell & Moring—power firm that they are—employed an unquestionable screwup. Will they now take responsibility for him and return the funds, or defer and fight Regal on it? Operative words: power firm. Take a wild guess.
Through a representative, Crowell & Moring did declined to comment to the Observer on the suit, filed today. Earlier, they declined comment on Regal’s threat of a suit to the Observer.
