ECBA Succeeds in Motion to Disqualify Plaintiffs’ Co-Counsel

ECBA recently succeeded on a motion to disqualify plaintiffs’ co-counsel in a pending litigation in New York Supreme Court.  Retained as special ethics counsel on the disqualification motion, ECBA was able to convince the Court to disqualify the firm because one of its associates had previously represented defendants in the same matter, and had obtained material client confidences, before he moved laterally to the plaintiffs’ firm.

ECBA attorneys Hal R. Lieberman, Hayley Horowitz, and Zoe Salzman handled the disqualification motion.
