DLA Piper’s overbilling suit settles

Case made headlines when emails released implied the firm purposely overbilled its client

Last month, DLA Piper found itself trying to deflate implications that one of its firmwide best practices is to overbill clients. But the drama appears to be over, as both sides have reached a settlement.

The controversy centered on a lawsuit DLA was embroiled in with a former client, TransGas Development Systems. DLA sued TransGas in 2010 for an unpaid $675,000 bill, and the company’s CEO Adam Victor fired back with a countersuit, claiming DLA had overbilled him.
