A trial lawyer with Womble Bond Dickinson in Greensboro, North Carolina, has been having a tough time getting paid for his work representing a company in a court-appointed receivership.

The problem is not the quality of trial lawyer Philip Mohr’s work representing A Perfect Fit For You, the medical equipment company that had to close following extensive damage from a 2018 hurricane. And it’s not the number of hours or the amount billed—about $60,000. The trouble was what a North Carolina Business Court called his “flagrant disregard” for an order setting forth the procedures for submitting those bills.
