The Chicago law firm is handling the fraud case in which Ramon Abbas is standing trial.
Mr. Gal was hired by Abbas after he was arrested in Dubai following a raid of his residence where Emirate police announced they found about 16 Billion naira in cash out of an estimated #168 billion online scams linked to the syndicate.
Hushpuppi will be transferred to Los Angeles to continue his trial and he has already sought for the services of a court appointed counsel.
Mr. Gal has in his earlier defence accused the Interpol and FBI of kidnapping his client from Dubai and has vowed to prove the innocence of Abbas in the court of law.
It is therefore not yet clear what went wrong and the parties had to part ways considering Mr. Gal's reputation in handling top cases in the country. Hushpuppi allegedly paid the top firm $10 million for their services.
