Baptiste & Wilder, a union-side labor firm and longtime outside counsel to the Teamsters, is having a bit of labor trouble of its own. Last year the firm was hit with a malpractice suit by former client Martha Lockwood, whom the firm represented in a wrongful-termination suit in the mid-1990s.

Lockwood alleges attorneys Robert Baptiste and Patrick Szymanski failed to follow up on a lawsuit for defamation against her former supervisors and neglected to tell her that the case had been dismissed. Lockwood, who hired attorney Christopher Hoge of Crowley, Hoge & Fein, is seeking $1.5 million in damages. Eccleston & Wolf attorney Alfred Scanlan, who is representing the firm, denies the charges.
