Pepper Hamilton and one of its prominent tax partners, W. Robert Gagne, have been hit with a potentially massive legal malpractice suit brought by a bankruptcy trustee who claims the firm ignored blatant conflicts of interest when it allowed Gagne family members and trusts to invest heavily in an ailing company in order to hide its deteriorating financial condition from its creditors. Pepper Hamilton's executive partner said Monday that the suit has "no merit."
