LGLJ Resolves Breach of Contract Suit Following Party Depositions

Steve Johnson was retained by a large commercial bakery to recover monies owed to it by a Chicagoland distributor who failed to properly remit the amounts owed to the bakery in accordance with the contract between the parties.  Steve realized at the start that this matter would not be resolved without filing suit, so he worked with the client to quickly prepare a serve a lawsuit on the distributor. Steve pushed the litigation forward to promptly depose the principals of the distributor and established the full nature of the breach that resulted in the distributor grossly underpaying on the contract.  As a result, the matter was settled shortly after depositions much to the satisfaction of the firm’s client.
