Two Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg partners last week struck back at Mary Bucksbaum Scanlan, heir to a founder of mall owner General Growth Properties Inc., who sued them and their Chicago-based law firm for alleged malpractice. Bucksbaum in August sued a general trust and the lawyers as officers of that trust, alleging they "breached their fiduciary duty of loyalty" when the trust entered certain loan transactions and purchased General Growth shares that dropped in value as the company moved toward an April bankruptcy.
