Court Approves Dewey Settlement With Partners, Estate


U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn has granted permission for a settlement between Dewey & LeBoeuf’s former partners and the law firm’s estate, valued at $71.5 million, a Reuters’ article reported.

In the settlement, the partners will pay a portion of their compensation. These payments can range from as little as $5,000 and as much as $3.5 million, the article said. The settlement will allow the partners to be exempt from any potential lawsuits regarding Dewey’s debt.

Approximately 400 partners agreed to the settlement, the article said.
