Proview Sued By Its Lawyers for Not Paying Their Legal Fees
Proview is being sued by its own lawyers for not paying their legal fees accrued while fighting Apple over the iPad trademark, reports Sina Tech via Engadget.
According to Sina Tech, Grandall Law Firm confirmed that its shady client refused to pay up the promised 4 percent of Apple's settlement fee, which equates to $2.4 million. While acknowledging their contractual arrangement (wherein the law firm covers the legal fees in advance, and then expect the client to pay up after winning the case), Proview founder Yang Rongshan told Sina Tech that Grandall's behavior is "nonsense," and that his company isn't obliged to pay back immediately as it isn't under normal operation right now. However, Yang promises Proview won't "pass the buck."
