K&L Gates is being accused of making exorbitant demands for more than half a million dollars in legal fees, by a Massachusetts-based plaintiffs attorney who sued longtime K&L Gates client World Wrestling Entertainment and is now saddled with sanctions.

In the fee fight, plaintiffs attorney Konstantine Kyros of Kyros Law has pointed to tasks such as research and creating a PowerPoint presentation, alleging that K&L Gates overbilled for time spent on those activities. Jerry McDevitt, WWE’s lawyer at K&L Gates, has said the allegations have no merit.
