White & Case has hit back at a former senior legal assistant who accused the firm of pregnancy discrimination, filing a lawsuit in Manhattan state court that details a pattern of doctoring reimbursement requests for at least three years.

In a complaint this month, White & Case accused Hannah Kim of bilking the firm out of at least $500,000 as a result of the fraudulent activity. It also noted that she was already a highly paid employee who had earned over $590,000 in the three years and one month before she left for a similar position at Cravath Swain & Moore in February 2020.
