EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County law firm is suing several other law offices for allegedly breaching a joint venture agreement.
Torhoermann Law LLC filed a complaint on Feb. 1 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Thomas Keel & Laird LLC and Burke Wise Morrissey and Kaveny LLC, alleging they abruptly terminated their joint venture agreement.
According to the complaint, Torhoermann Law alleges the defendant firms wrongfully discharged the plaintiff as co-counsel in a case, directed the firm to cease communicating with injured parties and wrongfully withheld information relating to the terms of settlement.
Torhoemann alleges that as a result of the defendants' breach of the agreement, it was deprived of its share of profits from their joint venture and has sustained damages of over $50,000.
Torhoermann Law requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants of more than $50,000, plus costs of this suit and all other relief as the court deems just.
It is represented by David L. Antognoli of Goldenberg Heller & Antognoli PC in Edwardsville.
Madison County Circuit Court case number 17-c-142
