Johnny Depp Settles Lawsuit With Former Lawyers
In July 2021, it was reported that Johnny Depp had settled a long-standing legal battle with his former lawyers, Bloom Hergott. The suit had been ongoing since 2017, when Depp accused the firm of professional malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, and fraud, among other things. Depp claimed that his former lawyers had mismanaged his finances and failed to disclose conflicts of interest.
The settlement amount was not disclosed, but both parties released a joint statement indicating that they had “resolved their legal dispute to their mutual satisfaction.” The statement also said that Depp was pleased to have the matter behind him and was looking forward to focusing on his career and his upcoming projects.
This settlement comes on the heels of several high-profile legal battles for Depp, including his defamation suit against The Sun newspaper in the UK, which he ultimately lost. The settlement with his former lawyers may represent a turning point for Depp, as he seeks to put his legal troubles behind him and move forward with his career.
