THE law firm of Banes Horey Berman & Miller LLC — formerly known as O’Connor Berman Horey & Banes LLC — has filed a lawsuit against Imperial Pacific International LLC for breach of contract, implied breach of contract, and quantum meruit in federal court on Thursday.

The lawsuit states that IPI owes the law firm more than $120,000 in attorney’s fees and expenses on all matters for which the law firm performed legal services for IPI.

The law firm demands a jury trial and asked the court that it be awarded damages to be proven at trial.

According to the lawsuit, the law firm represented IPI in two civil lawsuits filed by Pacific Rim Land Development LLC.

The law firm also represented IPI in the mechanic’s lien action and defamation lawsuit filed by USA Fanter Corp. Ltd.

It also represented IPI in filing a complaint against FSM Recycling Corp. relating to theft of construction materials at the IPI warehouses.

In addition, the law firm said it provided IPI miscellaneous legal services.

On or about Dec. 13, 2019, the law firm and IPI entered into a valid and enforceable contract regarding the Pacific Rim lawsuit against the casino investor.

The law firm stated in the lawsuit that it performed its obligation to provide valuable legal services and billed IPI for those services and related expenses.

But  IPI breached the agreement by failing to pay the balance on invoices and failing to replenish the depleted retainer, the law firm stated.

On or about Feb. 11, 2020, the law firm and IPI entered into another valid and enforceable contract for the law firm to provide legal services to IPI in the USA Fanter mechanic's lien matter in return for money payments by IPI.

Moreover, on or about April 8, 2020, the law firm and IPI agreed that the law firm would represent IPI in the defamation action on the same terms as the mechanic's lien matter, but with a separate initial retainer.

However, IPI breached that agreement by failing to pay the balance on invoices and failing to replenish the depleted retainer, the lawsuit stated.

On or about March 23, 2020, the law firm and IPI entered into a valid and enforceable contract regarding the IPI civil action against FSM Recycling Corp. and certain individuals, in return for money payments by IPI.

But IPI breached this agreement by failing to pay the balance on invoices and failing to replenish the depleted retainer, according to the lawsuit.
