Morgan Lewis Sued Over Clients' Business With Cuba

Morgan Lewis & Bockius vowed to "vigorously" defend itself against two businessmen who sued the firm for legal malpractice and conflict of interest, calling the allegations that the firm gave erroneous legal advice about their company's trade with Cuba "grossly inaccurate" and "meritless."

The plaintiffs, brothers Stefan & Don Brodie, claim in the suit filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court late Wednesday afternoon that they were criminally prosecuted for following the firm's advice that their company, Bro-Tech Corp., was free to trade with Cuba despite the American embargo on such actions.
