Breach of Contract Trial

A major manufacturer of private label food products was sued by its former business partner for breaching their joint venture agreement.  The partner claimed that our client set too tight a specification for an ingredient supplied to the venture by the partner.  The partner’s damage claim exceeded $34 million.  

During the six-week trial, our team of trial attorneys convinced the court that the partner’s expert had made substantial errors and had limited the damages awarded to $275,000, less than had been offered in settlement and one percent of the amount claimed.  Our efficiency in handling large cases was further confirmed when the partner’s financial records disclosed that the plaintiff’s attorneys fees were approximately double the amount of our fees.
