Ahrens v. Swinburne & Jackson, No. 1122-CC01553, Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, Missouri (Jan. 14, 2014)

The plaintiff in Ahrens v. Sigillito filed a separate action for legal malpractice against a British law firm.  The suit alleges that the firm prepared loan contracts upon which her business transactions were based, that in those contracts the firm represented that it was acting as her legal representative, and that she had relied upon those documents and representations in part when she proceeded with the transactions.  The firm moved to have the suit dismissed for lack of personal jurisdiction, claiming that it had not transacted business in Missouri and had no other cognizable contact with the state or its citizens.  Michael Gross was retained to prepare briefs in trial and appellate court proceedings.  The trial court denied the motion to dismiss and scheduled the case for trial.
