Johnny Depp slammed with a $350,000 lawsuit over unpaid bills

Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has been hit with a $350,000 suit from a law firm claiming that the star has not paid his bills. The lawsuit was reportedly filed against the Pirates of the Caribbean star on Monday.

Depp hired law firm Buckley LLP in 2017 to sue his former entertainment law company, Bloom Hergott LLP, which he accused of pocketing $30 million in fees without a written agreement, according to the reports.

Three Buckley attorneys, Fredrick Levin, Michael Rome, and Ali Abugheida, have worked on the case until this January. Levin successfully defended the case at a summary judgment hearing in August 2018.

Johnny Depp is now being represented by Adam Waldman and attorneys from Brown Rudnick LLP. The case is currently set for trial in September.

According to the filed lawsuit, Buckley has billed the actor $535,697.28 – which represents a 10 percent discount on the firm’s hourly rate. Depp has only paid $187,717.39, leaving a balance of $347,979.89.

The suit also states that Depp’s representatives notified Buckley LLP in January that he was dropping the firm because he was looking to “contract the number of law firms providing services to him and his entities”.

Depp’s representative in the matter, Edward White has told the firm that he had “high regard” for Levin and that the actor intended to pay the outstanding fees in the first quarter of 2019.

“Plaintiff received further assurances regarding payment from Depp’s agents, most recently with promises to pay the amount owed in full by mid-May,” the suit states.
