A former associate of Novak Druce Connolly Bove & Quigg, which was partially absorbed by Polsinelli in 2016, has sued both firms and four Polsinelli lawyers in federal court in Washington, D.C., claiming they failed to pay him nearly $128,000 in fees generated by a client he introduced.

Jose Antonio Arochi filed his complaint on Friday, one day after Novak Druce filed a declaratory judgment suit in Houston, asserting that Arochi sought to ”harass, frighten and coerce” the partners over money he wasn’t owed to begin with. In fact, the firm claims, Arochi was overpaid and should return some of his earnings.
