Business & Estate Litigation

$300,000 In Additional Workers Compensation Premiums Saved

Before the client came to us, their insurance company had obtained a default judgment against them for additional workers' compensation premiums in excess of $30,000.  We aggressively negotiated and had the default judgment vacated by consent and the insurance company agreed to dismiss its lawsuit and exchange mutual releases.  Our client did not have to pay any additional premiums.

$4+ Million "Family Farm" Estate Litigation

When the patriarch of the family farm passed away, he willed the property equally to his three grown children. One wanted to work the farm with her husband, but could not afford to buy out her siblings at market value. So she negotiated a contract for a below-market purchase and very favorable mortgage terms in exchange for sharing the profits of any eventual sale of the property down the road. Over time the farmland became very valuable. The farmer sibling secretly transferred ownership of the property to a private holding company and sold the development rights without sharing the profits promised to her other siblings. Our business litigation attorneys uncovered this scheme and built a case that led to a quick, favorable settlement for our clients.

Director/Officer Sued for Breach of Fiduciary Duty in Corporate Governance Litigation

A director of a charitable foundation sued our client, also a director and the CEO of the foundation, alleging that he breached his fiduciary duty to the foundation by making unwise investments. The plaintiff sought to surcharge our client personally for millions of dollars of losses sustained by the foundation’s investments. Our defense was that there was no negligence, rather the investments were proper and losses sustained as a result of market declines. After a lengthy trial, the judge found no wrongdoing on the part of our client and dismissed the lawsuit.
