September 25, 2022 – Larry Hutcher, Co-Managing Partner and Chair of the Commercial Litigation law practice was featured in a Daily Beast article titled “The Bizarre Legal Feud Brewing Between King Charles’ Tailor and a Famed NYC Lawyer“.
The lawsuit stems from a civil complaint filed on Sept. 20 in Manhattan Supreme Court by Ed Hayes who says that as a minority owner of Anderson & Sheppard of London he has come to suspect the company fails to collect sales tax in New York and elsewhere in America. Hayes further raises the possibility that the company is hiding profits.
A famous Saville Row Tailor since 1906, Anderson & Sheppard, has long been King Charles’ suit maker of choice since 1983. The famed tailor has also created custom suits for notables including Sir Winston Churchill, Fred Astaire, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Noel Coward and Marlene Dietrich.
The Daily Beast reported: A prominent New York attorney who represents Anderson & Sheppard accused Hayes of pulling a kind of reverse Wolfe. The attorney, Larry Hutcher, charged that Hayes is seeking to pass fiction off as real life. “Ed Hayes, who is obviously familiar with fiction, decided he’d like to write his own make-believe story,” Hutcher told The Daily Beast. “There is no substance to any of the allegations he has raised.”
