Litigation Regarding Breach of Fiduciary Duty of Developers' Legal Counsel

Regalia Beach Developers, LLC and Regalia OTM
Representation of Regalia Beach Developers and Regalia OTM, international developers of luxury condominiums, in a lawsuit against their former lawyer. As the developer's principal resides primarily outside of the U.S., our client looked to its South Florida lawyer for counsel. But in breach of his ethical and fiduciary duties, the developer's lawyer convinced the client to hire a company that the lawyer wholly owned to manage each of the projects while simultaneously continuing to represent the plaintiffs and the projects as their lawyer. Brought a lawsuit on behalf of our clients seeking to rescind the business transactions and recover the money damages suffered by them on account of the lawyer's wrongful conduct.
