Attorney won a bench trial
Attorney won a bench trial. In this matter, our client is a leading commercial real estate broker in Philadelphia who sued its law firm client for non-payment of its fee related to a lease restructure. The law firm then counterclaimed against our client alleging damages arising out of theories of breach of fiduciary duty, professional negligence and breach of contract. We defended the counterclaim portion of the litigation and established to the court that the Plaintiff's claims were meritless after a multi-week trial and the court rejected the counterclaim but granted our client's claim for fees owed.
