Proview recently acquired $60 million by successfully using all its devious skills to arm-twist Apple and extort money. Its lawyers helped it and the selfish Proview forgot to give them their due.
Lawyers are not going to take that lying down.
According to Sina Tech, Grandall Law Firm confirmed that its shady client refused to pay up the promised 4 percent of Apple’s settlement fee, which equates to $2.4 million.
Acknowledging their contractual arrangement (wherein the law firm covers the legal fees in advance, and then expect the client to pay up after winning the case), Proview founder Yang Rongshan told Sina Tech that Grandall’s behavior was “nonsense,” and that his company was not obliged to pay back immediately as it is was not under normal operation right now.
However, Yang promised that Proview would not “pass the buck.”
Considering how the lies of Proview and feeling of jingoism (complimented with hatred for Americans) got Proview the support from judiciary and government to guarantee a victory over Apple, no sane person should expect Proview to pay these lawyers.
