Former client sues Ropes & Gray for professional negligence

Marketing services company blames its bankruptcy on the law firm

One of Ropes & Gray’s former corporate clients says the law firm acted negligently and ushered it into bankruptcy.

Three years ago, EMAK Worldwide Inc., a marketing services company that represents several advertising agencies, was seeking to prevent its CEO from regaining control of its board of directors. The company turned to the Boston law firm Ropes & Gray for legal counsel on a stock transaction that would grant its preferred shareholders the right to vote in a proxy contest that would give them about 28 percent of the voting power in electing board directors.
