The former head of intellectual property at Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman sexually harassed at least 12 female employees at the firm — including making advances on seven of them in one night — before he was fired in December, according to a lawsuit filed Monday by the firm.

Pitcock denies sexually harassing anyone, let alone having engaged in a pattern of sexual harassment.
