LawFuel has learned that Carolynn K. Beck is now a partner at Goldstein & McClintock. Beck was a name-partner and General Counsel at Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP. The issues at Pierce Bainbridge have been well covered in this space; it is safe to say that many currently view it as a severely flawed law firm; with a good deal of the reported troubling activity happening under Beck’s watch.
LawFuel wrote about Beck’s departure in our article – “Another “Name-on-the-Door” Partner Out at Imploding Pierce Bainbridge Law Firm.” Beck is joined at Goldstein & McClintock LLLP by ex-Pierce Bainbridge partner, Craig Bolton.
Beck is currently a defendant in at least three lawsuits in her individual capacity. Two brought by ex-partner Don Lewis, one by a Philadelphia lawyer; Bolton is a defendant in one of the Lewis lawsuits. LawFuel has also noted, based on a report in Law360 – “Pierce Bainbridge Funder Targets Ex-Partners In Debt Chase” – the possibility that Virage Capital Management will chase ex-Pierce Bainbridge partners at their new firms.
As we have previously reported, other firms for former Pierce Bainbridge partners include Armstrong Teasedale (Eric Creizman, Caroline Polisi and Melissa Madrigal), Bathaee Dunne (Yavar Bathaee and Brian Dunne) BraunHagey & Borden (Douglas Curran, Franklin Velie and Jonathan Kortmansky), Hecht Partners (David Hecht), Khan Law USA (Amman Khan), Warren Terzian (Tom Warren and Dan Terizan) and Withers Bergman (Christopher N. LaVigne.)
According to a Lewis Complaint, Pierce Bainbridge founder, John Mark Pierce, voiced negative views on Beck.
