A New York-based intellectual property boutique allegedly agreed that Raj Davé would be repaid the $92,000 in "working capital" he gave Darby & Darby while practicing there as a nonequity partner, if he ever moved to another law firm, reports the Blog of Legal Times.
But now that Davé is a patent partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, his former firm won't give him his money back, he says in a breach-of-contract lawsuit (PDF) filed earlier this month in the Eastern District of Virginia.
The managing partner of Darby & Darby didn't respond to the BLT's phone calls.
