Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher has been disqualified from representing a limited partnership in a dispute with a private equity fund because at least one of its lawyers, while working at another firm, had drafted fund formation documents at issue in the suit.

MapleWood Equity Partners (Offshore), Ltd., 603525/2005.
