The founder of LeClairRyan will likely be revealed as an additional defendant in the $128 million lawsuit targeting UnitedLex over its role in the firm’s bankruptcy, after a bankruptcy judge on Thursday gave the Chapter 7 trustee the go-ahead to amend her complaint.

Chapter 7 trustee Lynn Tavenner is seeking to hold an unnamed attorney partially responsible for the failure of the defunct firm’s joint venture with UnitedLex, claiming that the individual’s “misconduct” was integral to the New Law provider’s “scheme to loot [LeClairRyan] of its valuable assets.”
