McGuireWoods, Ex-Partner Wrestle Over Lead Role in $49 Million Class Action


— June 4, 2007

McGuireWoods and former partner Eliot Disner aren’t wasting time before duking it out over control of a $49 million class action against BAR/BRI, the nation’s leading bar review company. Less than two weeks after Disner says disagreement over strategy led to his ouster from the firm, the lawyer has asked a judge to name him “co-lead counsel” in the BAR/BRI litigation. McGuireWoods has fired back, arguing that Disner, already in line for a 30 percent cut of the attorney fees, should have no role whatsoever.
