High Court keeps litigators' partnership spat secret
Untested, “serious and embarrassing” allegations about a top QC and his legal partner are being kept under wraps by the High Court at Auckland.
Heaney & Partners lawyers David Heaney QC and Susan Thodey are being sued by their former legal partner Helen Rice.
Ms Rice left Heaney & Partners, formerly known as Heaney & Co about a year ago.
The firm is best known for its work defending all seven former councils in leaky building disputes, for which it has reaped $31 million in legal fees since 2002.
