Kasowitz Benson Torres’ brief representation of a former U.S. ambassador in a legal malpractice lawsuit has spawned a separate malpractice case against the firm, as well as a suit over legal fees.

Kasowitz previously represented Cesar Cabrera, a former U.S. ambassador to the island nations of Mauritius and Seychelles, in a 2016 legal malpractice suit against 70-lawyer Meister Seelig & Fein and founding partner Stephen Meister. The case, after the Kasowitz firm withdrew, was dismissed in May 2018 by U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel of the Southern District of New York.
