After several years of fierce litigation, a settlement has been reached for CashCall, Inc. in a landmark legal malpractice lawsuit against Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, an AmLaw 100 law firm.
Keller/Anderle LLP, attorneys for CashCall, had previously filed a $950 million lawsuit in 2017, one of the largest legal malpractice cases ever seen in the country. The settlement was achieved on the eve of trial after several key victories on critical motions. Most recently, on July 9th, a California trial judge rejected a defense bid to apply Washington, D.C.,'s contributory negligence law instead of California's compensatory negligence law, setting the stage for the trial, which was set to begin on August 16th.
LCA Fellow Reuben Camper Cahn and LCA Senior Fellow Jennifer Keller, along with Shaun Hoting, LCA Fellow Chase Scolnick, Dylan Mefford and Gregory Sergi, represent CashCall. "We are pleased to achieve this result for our client after four years of hard-fought litigation," says Jennifer L. Keller.
Keller/Anderle LLP is among the premier boutique trial law firms in California, handling highly complex litigation of all types, including: commercial, intellectual property, securities, bad faith, class actions, white collar criminal defense, entertainment/sports, legal malpractice and insurance recovery. The firm represents individuals, closely-held corporations, and some of the nation’s largest corporations.
Keller/Anderle LLP attorneys have won nearly $1 billion in judgments, and successfully defended many other high stakes cases. Members of the firm have over 400 first chair jury trials. Unique among law firms handling high profile, bet-the-company cases of such a caliber, is that both name partners are women.
