Akin Gump sued for legal malpractice

Outdoor sign company claims firm gave improper counseling

World Wide Rush, an outdoor signage company, filed a legal malpractice lawsuit against the law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld on Friday for improperly advising the company that it could install signs that violated a Los Angeles ban.

The company hired Akin Gump as its counsel in April 2008 to aid the company in its lawsuit to overturn the city’s ban on supergraphic signs. Shortly after hiring the firm, federal district court judge Audrey Collins decided the Los Angeles ban on supergraphics signs was unconstitutional and violated the First Amendment.
