Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal was hit with a lawsuit Friday accusing the firm of illegally recruiting several lawyers from Chicago-based Huron Consulting Group, where a Sonnenschein partner used to work, court records show. The suit, which seeks injunctive relief and $30 million, accuses Lisa Murtha, a partner in Sonnenschein's health care practice, of orchestrating the recruitment of three employees at Huron, which describes Sonnenschein as its "direct competitor" in the health care consulting business.
