Kasowitz Benson Torres has prevailed in a suit brought by a Puerto Rican real estate developer client who claimed the firm took too long to sue his former lawyers at Meister Seelig & Fein for legal malpractice.

Kasowitz sued Cesar Cabrera last year for $191,000 in unpaid bills, and Cabrera countersued for legal malpractice, arguing Kasowitz missed an opportunity to sue attorney Stephen Meister for having bungled Cabrera’s original claim against another developer. While a suit against Meister was eventually filed, U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel of the Southern District of New York threw it out it in May 2018.
