http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46467 Judge Sweet DEFENDANT, THE vice president of corporate defendant, hired a law firm to represent him on charges of racketeering and racketeering conspiracy. Defendant, subsequently acquitted of all charges, claimed that counsel committed to providing representation for him and his corporation regarding plaintiff’s invoices in dealings defendant corporation had with its insurance company. Defendant claimed that counsel’s agreement included agreeing to review with plaintiff their billing, agreeing to negotiate on defendants’ behalf and obtaining confidential information about the invoices.
