A law firm representing US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law is suing him for lack of payment.

Corcnicello, Tendler & Baumel-Cornicello filed a lawsuit earlier this month seeking $102,000 for its services in 2014 and 2015, The New York Daily News initially reported Sunday.

The company, meanwhile, is "working to resolve this matter,” according to a spokeswoman for Kushner Companies.

The president’s Jewish son-on-law who is married to Ivanka Trump started serving as Trump’s senior advisor after stepping down as CEO of his company earlier this year.

Kushner’s debt collection practices and poor maintenance at several of the company’s properties are also subject to investigation in the US state of Maryland, the state’s Attorney General Brian Frosh announced in October.

Apart from that, Kushner is also a person of interest in an ongoing investigation into possible collusion between Trump and Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign and transition.

Reports emerged in June that he was present at a meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in the summer of 2016.

The meeting had been arranged by the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., in an effort to find damaging information about Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In a declassified report released in January, the intelligence community concluded that Russia helped with the New York billionaire’s campaign effort ahead of winning the White House, an allegation dismissed both by Moscow and Trump.
