Conrad O’Brien has won a motion to dismiss a legal malpractice case for an AmLaw100 law firm against a former client.

Sheppard Jr. granted summary judgment in favor of the law firm, ruling LVI suffered no damages and dismissed its malpractice claim against the firm for failing to timely appeal the denial of damages for construction delays.  The AmLaw100 law firm was represented in this case by Nicholas M.
