K&L Gates Appeals Revival of Le-Nature's Malpractice Suit

K&L Gates and accounting firm Pascarella & Wiker are accused of giving Le-Nature’s a clean bill of financial health despite numerous red flags in a 2003 investigation ordered by a special committee of independent directors appointed after several senior financial managers resigned citing suspicions of fraud, the article noted.
