A former Dentons partner has alleged he was fired after trying to stop firm leadership from pocketing tens of millions of dollars of client money, according to a lawsuit in federal court.

Zhang contends he was wrongfully terminated after reporting the alleged conduct to the firm’s governing board and calling for McNamara’s immediate removal, according to a complaint filed May 27.
