A 2006 Penn Law grad is one of imploded law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf’s 20 largest creditors.Dewey filed for bankruptcy in Manhattan late Monday.
The once-gigantic law firm blamed its downfall on the economy and pay packages awarded to star partners known as “rainmakers.”
But a relatively young associate lawyer, not a rainmaker, is listed among big-league creditors including Thomson Reuters, Bank of America, and LexisNexis.
Legal tabloid Above the Law pointed out in a post Wednesday morning that the sum likely represented more than a year’s worth of her salary.
Saffitz was not immediately available for comment.
