Anthony Lin reports today in the NYLJ on a case in which a departing attorney used the firm logo on his retainer agreement, and other forms. Jacoby & Myers formally dissolved in 1999 [don’t they still advertise?], and one of the attorneys earlier involved continued to use the logo.
Plaintiff’s case was never filed, and she sued Jacoby & Myers as well as the attorney to whom she was referred. Result? Plaintiff fails to keep J & M in the case. Her attorney had no comment.
