Our client, an attorney, was accused by one of his former clients of breaching fiduciary duties by sharing confidential client documents and information with a former employee of the former client. This accusation was made after the former employee made use of certain documents in a lawsuit that the former employee had filed against the attorney’s former client. From the beginning, our client maintained that he had not shared any documents with anyone. Within 6 months, we negotiated a favorable settlement that did not require our client to acknowledge any wrongdoing or pay any monies. The key to achieving the favorable settlement was focusing attention on the former client’s inability to produce any credible evidence to support its suspicions.
