Johnny Depp has sued his former attorney Jacob Bloom, accusing him and his firm of legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment and more related in part to loans procured on the actor's behalf by his former management company.
Bloom and his firm allegedly "engaged in self-dealing and pursued and undertook transactions in the face of undisclosed conflicts of interest for their own financial benefit over that of their clients" and failed to disclose "years of misconduct" by Depp's business managers and collected more than $30 million in fees without a written contract, according to court documents filed Tuesday (via Deadline).
“In light of the longstanding relationship between the Bloom Firm and Mr. Depp, the Firm is extremely disappointed that Mr. Depp has decided to file this lawsuit," a spokesperson for Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal LaViolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman LLP said in a statement to The Times/ The firm intends to defend the lawsuit “vigorously.”
