Client Fires Morgan Lewis for ‘Enabling’ Trump

Wallace Global Fund wasn’t Morgan Lewis & Brockius’ biggest client, but it still made a big splash when it fired the BigLaw firm because it is “enabling” President Trump to use his new office for his own personal gain.

Bloomberg Law reports that that H. Scott Wallace, co-chair of the Wallace Global Fund, fired the firm in a letter to chair Jami McKeon.

“The letter points the finger at Morgan Lewis partner Sherri Dillon, who appeared next to the president in a Jan. 11 press conference, where she announced she had devised a plan so that the public could rest easy that Trump’s sprawling real estate, hotel and other business interests would not create any conflicts with his elected role,” writes .

The letter cites Trump’s business meetings at his Florida resort, Trump’s criticism of Nordstrom’s for dropping his daughter’s clothing line, and other reasons.
