Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher is the latest law firm to be named in a suit stemming from the breakdown of the commodities firm Refco Inc. The action, filed by liquidators and the trustee for Sphinx Funds, a family of funds that collapsed after doing business with Refco, claims that Gibson Dunn's representation of various Sphinx entities was a conflict of interest that the firm never disclosed. The suit claims that representation contributed to the funds' loss of $263 million as a result of Refco's meltdown.
