The ABA Journal reports in this story that an ex-Quarles & Brady partner has been suspended for nine months for failure to turn over fees he earned as a trustee to his former firm. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has more detail in this story on April 8, 2008.
The Office of Lawyer Regulation referee had recommended a public reprimand, but the Wisconsin Supreme Court opted for the stricter penalty. The moral of this story is 1) that you need to read the fine print of your partnership agreement and 2) never get between a firm and its money.
