A Houston company is seeking $1.3 million from Foley & Lardner and two of its lawyers, alleging they “perpetrated an outright fraud” to induce it to invest and loan money to another firm client.

The plaintiff, Schumann/Steier Holdings, accuses Foley and the attorneys of ”numerous misrepresentations and omissions as well as breaches of fiduciary duty.” In addition to the law firm, the suit names special counsel Anacarolina Estaba, partner Peter McLauchlan and McLauchlan Family Properties. Bedfeld and McLauchlan split their practices between Houston and New York.
