A lawyer who is now with Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads was hit with a legal malpractice verdict of more than $6.6 million in a suit brought against her and her former firm by a corporate real estate client that said her poor drafting of a lease agreement sparked a lawsuit in California that cost $4 million to settle.

In his verdict from a nonjury trial, Judge Mark I. Bernstein of Philadelphia’s Commerce Court ruled that attorney Karen Senser and Segre & Senser must reimburse Crown Cork & Seal the $4 million it paid to settle the California suit, as well as more than $972,000 in attorney fees and $1.6 million in interest.
