O’Melveny’s Uhland, Taylor, and Martin Co-Author Article on Unfinished Business Rule

April 25, 2016

O’Melveny's Suzzanne Uhland, Jennifer Taylor, and Christopher Martin co-authored the April 25, 2016, Daily Journal article, “Will the Ninth Circuit Wrap Up ‘Unfinished Business’?” The article discusses the “unfinished business” rule, which provides that client cases and the future profits from such cases are the property of the original firm that represented the client, even if the firm is bankrupt. However, the authors wrote, a recent string of law firm bankruptcies has raised questions about the law and whether it makes for good policy.

Suzzanne Uhland and Jennifer Taylor are partners, and Christopher Martin is an associate, in O’Melveny’s Restructuring practice.
