Ousted UMG Exec Charlie Walk Files $60M Lawsuit Against Attorney, Claims “Botched” Handling of #MeToo Allegations

On behalf of former recording industry executive Charlie Walk, Schlam Stone & Dolan LLP on March 25 filed a $60 million legal malpractice action against Walk’s former attorney Mark Kasowitz, contending that rather than challenging Walk’s unjustified ouster by his former employer, UMG Recordings, Inc., Kasowitz counseled Walk to accept a settlement that deprived him of tens of millions of dollars due him and of his ability to defend his reputation. Schlam Stone & Dolan attorneys Jeffrey Eilender, Erik Groothuis and Michael Brodlieb, along with co-counsel Bryan Freedman, are handling the case.
