Akerman is facing a malpractice lawsuit from a former acquaintance-turned-business associate of corporate raider Victor Posner who is claiming that she suffered damages after the firm gave “negligent and reckless” legal advice to a court-appointed overseer of Posner’s estate.

A complaint filed April 10 in Miami-Dade Circuit Court pits Brenda Nestor against the law firm over its representation of Philip von Kahle, a lawyer and a broker with Fort Lauderdale estate planner Moecker & Associates. Von Kahle took over from Nestor in 2015 as the curator of Posner’s estate. Posner, who built a fortune and reputation specializing in hostile business takeovers, reportedly left behind a $321 million estate when he died more than a decade and a half ago at age 83.
