Arent Fox has sued one its former partners, Jay Deshmukh, alleging he breached an agreement to pay the firm $96,000 when he negotiated a speedy exit to join Kasowitz Benson Torres last fall.

In a complaint filed this week in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Arent Fox asserts that Deshmukh submitted his resignation in September 2018, triggering a 60-day notice provision in the firm’s standard partnership agreement. The firm said it agreed to waive the notice requirement, however, in return for six monthly payments of $16,000.
