Investors sue Cozen O’Connor, Blank Rome for $27 million

Plaintiffs say firms’ former partner persuaded them to invest tens of millions of dollars in fake project

Two law firms just received an unwanted holiday gift: a lawsuit.

A group of British investors is suing Cozen O’Connor and Blank Rome, claiming a former partner who had worked at both firms conspired with a landlord and his business partner to persuade them to invest tens of millions of dollars in a fictitious real estate development project in Pennsylvania. The plaintiffs filed their suit Tuesday in Manhattan federal court and are seeking at least $27 million from the firms.
