Alston & Bird has reached a confidential settlement in a legal malpractice suit that sought tens of millions of dollars by a former employee and confidante of the late Olga Goizueta, widow of former Coca-Cola chairman and CEO Roberto Goizueta.

The complaint, filed in Fulton County Superior Court in 2016, said Alston & Bird had handled the affairs of both Olga Goizueta and plaintiff Katherine Stearns prior to Goizueta’s death in 2015. Roberto Goizueta died in 1997, leaving an estate worth over $1 billion.
