The former president and CEO of Chicago-based GoPicnic Brands, which specializes in the production of “healthy” and portable shelf-stable prepackaged meals, has sued Synergy Law Group, a Chicago law firm she said gave her bum legal advice and then partnered with venture capitalists to oust her from leadership of the company she helped found, allegedly costing her millions of dollars.
