Law firm sues ex-partner, alleging he billed client for $2.3M in fictional work

"A New York law firm sued a former partner Tuesday, contending that he billed a corporate client $2.3 million over an eight-year period for “nonexistent work on cases that had already been terminated and/or never existed.”
David Denenberg also sought reimbursement for $800,000 in nonexistent expenses, Davidoff Hutcher & Citron contends in its Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit. Alleging that Denenberg also drafted fake court orders and forged judges’ signatures to support his alleged fraudulent scheme, the firm is seeking reimbursement of the $3.6 million he was paid between 2006 and 2014, according to the New York Daily News and Newsday (sub.req.).
The firm says it referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn after firing Denenberg. The office declined requests for comment." More.
