Network's Morgenstein & Jubelirer to Defend Brobeck (Temporarily)
New York Lawyer -- March 17, 2003
By Brenda Sandburg -- The Recorder

Although defunct and indebted, Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison found a firm willing to represent it, at least temporarily, in litigation over its hiring of two lateral partners in 1995.

Morgenstein & Jubelirer filed a motion with Los Angeles Superior Court seeking to vacate or extend the April 8 trial date in the suit filed by the now-defunct Santa Monica firm Dickson, Carlson & Campillo against Brobeck and the two partners. The court will hear arguments on the motion Tuesday.

John Worden, a partner at Morgenstein & Jubelirer, said his firm had agreed to temporarily represent Brobeck to file for the extension. "How long we will [represent the firm] hasn't been decided," Worden said.

Keker & Van Nest had represented Brobeck, Pole and Fitzgerald, but on March 4 the court granted the firm's motion to withdraw as their counsel. Keker said a conflict had arisen as a result of Brobeck's dissolution last month. The firm also noted in court papers that Brobeck owes it slightly more than $300,000.
