false invoices

Summary: The former employees taking on defunct Butler & Hosch add the charge of making fake invoices.

On top of their extant suit against former employers Butler & Hosch, who failed to give its 700 attorneys 60 days’ notice, required by the WARN act, the team has added further claims that Butler CEO Robert Hosch has created more than $7 million in fake invoices.


They amended their suit Thursday claiming Hosch, in a scheme to dupe creditors, created more then $7 million in “receivables through false invoices that were never delivered to clients.”

Allegedly at least four of these schemes began Jan. 27, and they give evidence that Hosch anticipated their possible liquidation, and therefore have no excuse not to offer employees the due 60 day warning.

“If the firm is engaged in creating fictitious receivables, if they’re using those fictitious receivables in seeking credit or capital, then they know or should know that when this false scheme is discovered they’ll likely not have access to credit,” said Seth Lehrman, a Farmer Jaffe Weissing Edwards, Fistos & Lehrman partner representing in this suit.

“Hosch directed B&H to bill MSW clients a transfer fee of $350 per file,” the suit states. “The transfer fee is not an approved client charge.”

With 21,690 invoices, that added up to over $7.5 million.
