Hollywood law firms have long been known for walking that extra mile to attract — and, more importantly, keep — celebrity clients. Now they’re suing over the loss of some of their star properties.

After occupying a lucrative slot on the A-list client roster at Beverly Hills’ Rosenfeld, Meyer & Susman, actress Sharon Stone decided last year to look elsewhere for legal aid. Seems that her enthusiasm for the firm waned after ex-Rosenfeld partner William Skrzyniarz was named as the source of a racy quote about Stone’s alleged promiscuity that appeared in an unauthorized biography published in 1997. The denials flew quickly — from Stone about the conduct and from Skrzyniarz about the statement — but in the end, both Stone and Skrzyniarz parted company with the firm.
