A federal judge in Manhattan has ruled against a lawyer seeking to collect a contingent fee on a case he lost at the trial level but which his client settled after filing an appeal.

Israeli-based Chemipal, which agreed to pay Fredericks $40,000 and a 35 percent contingent fee, claimed Slim-Fast violated its contract with it by not providing adequate marketing and advertising support.
