While a partner with Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, Douglas Rosenthal helped secure billions for the families of victims killed in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Rosenthal is now suing his former firm, claiming Sonnenschein violated its partnership agreement by underpaying him for work that brought the firm a windfall he estimates at more than $37 million. The case raises an interesting question: Just what is the proper relationship between a partner and his ex-firm?
