Jaroslawa Zelinsky Johnson, a former managing partner of Chadbourne & Parke’s defunct Kiev office, filed papers Thursday with a federal court in New York seeking to join a putative class action against her former firm filed in late August by current litigation partner Kerrie Campbell.

Chadbourne has vigorously denied Campbell’s claims.
