Winston & Strawn, a major international law firm, is suing the former owners of the Salt Lake City Tribune for $350,000 in allegedly unpaid fees and expenses.
W&S represented the McCarthey family in its battle to regain control of the Trib from Denver’s MediaNews Group, Inc. The firm says that it had an oral agreement with Salt Lake Tribune Publishing, the McCarthey’s corporation, and had been providing legal services since 1999. A family spokesman said he was "baffled" by the claim, since he says no promises were made.
