Dewey's former London landlord Prudential issues $10.3m claim
Dewey & LeBoeuf's former UK landlord Prudential has filed a $10.3m (£6.8m) claim against the collapsed law firm's estate, after an earlier claim for more than twice this amount was rejected by a New York bankruptcy court. The revised claim was filed in the New York Bankruptcy Court last month (25 February), with Prudential Assurance Company, which owns the No.1 Minster Court building which housed the failed firm's London practice, arguing the figure represents the firm's contractual liability under leases on the space.
