Mossack Fonseca is the Panamanian law firm at the center of the “Panama Papers” scandal.
According to Reuters, the firm has filed a lawsuit in U.S. federal court against Netflix, accusing the video streaming heavyweight of defamation.
Netflix is about to release a new movie based on the case. Mossack Fonseca is seeking to stop it.
The suit claims the firm portrays its staff as ruthless, uncaring lawyers involved in money laundering, tax evasion, bribes, and other crimes.
The law firm and corporate service provider was once the world’s fourth largest firm for of offshore financial services.
However, the firm shut down last year after U.S. prosecutors accused them of assisting clients in hiding assets, investments, and income from tax authorities.
