Heller Ehrman Estate Sues Greenberg Traurig

Check out today’s article in The Recorder entitled Heller Estate Files Malpractice Suit Against Greenberg Traurig.

The Heller estate is seeking to recover monies on several levels including the litigation costs in defending itself against the employee lawsuit relate to the WARN Act.

As far as I’m concerned, Greenberg Traurig should be footing the bill for all the WARN Act costs and penalties because if it wasn’t for their role in creating this massive fuster cluck, then at the very least Heller could have wound down its business operations in a more sensible manner. One that at the very least respected its employees, especially its hard working staff.

    I don’t see any of us lowly staff benefiting from this lawsuit. I wonder why they didn’t file this lawsuit as soon as they became aware of the issue. Probably had something to do with bankruptcy law, I don’ know. I guess the Heller Estate had its reasons.

    Yeah, I’m still a little bit bitter.

    I can’t imagine any one of us ex-Hellerites have enjoyed much over the last 3 years, and some of us are still wishing we could turn the clock back! I tell people at my firm, it was the BEST!! I am lucky to be working is my motto now and am happy to see dear friends from HE for lunch every now and again. If the lawsuit prevails and there is a monetary settlement or judgment, I can’t imagine it would make it’s way to us? And if it does, they take 90% of it for taxes like the last disbursement. To all in the LA HE Office, miss you and hope you are all doing well!!!

    Although I wishfully thought to be receiving a check from the last disbursement of checks, I am very glad to move on and have Heller Ehrman in the past. I don’t like to talk about a firm that doesn’t exist anymore except in our memory. I’m very happy and proud to stay in contact with who I consider “the best” at Heller.
