Commercial Litigation – Arbitration Win for Client

Steve Johnson successfully defended a commercial client at arbitration from a claim for breach of contract which also sought substantial damages in the form of attorney’s fees and costs incurred following the tender of the claim from the plaintiff bank to the firm’s client.  Steve and Chris Dunsing analyzed the contract between the parties and identified defenses to the claims of breach which resulted in an award being entered in favor of our client at the arbitration.  In the underlying tendered claim, Steve and Chris were able to quickly and successfully resolve the initial claim against the bank for a nuisance settlement of $1,500 in lieu of incurring the costs of trial.  All in all, a fantastic result was achieved on behalf of the firm’s client.
