Should Big Law Firms Only Represent Big Clients? Disgruntled Reed Smith Client Says Yes

Posted on December 5, 2007 by Jeffrey V. Mehalic

Andrew Lavoot Bluestone writes today in his New York Attorney Malpractice Blog about a malpractice case filed against Reed Smith by its former client, the Bair Foundation , which describes itself as a Christian charitable foundation devoted to foster care for children.

Bair alleges that when it was sued in a discrimination case, Reed Smith’s fees increased from an original estimate of $50,000 to $1 million, and claims that Reed Smith's economic model (more than 1,500 lawyers in 21 offices worldwide) is incompatible with its ability to represent smaller clients on a cost-effective basis. Law.com also has an article about the lawsuit , with some background about the parties' relationship and comments by their lawyers.
