No resulting liability attached to the agent. Obtained a fraud verdict against a publicly traded leasing company in favor of a major wholesale food distributor, in claims relating to the leasing company’s contract and selling practices. This was the first successful lawsuit in over 200 similar cases wherein a verdict against the leasing company was obtained. The leasing company was represented by one of the nation’s top law firms and spent over $5 million in attorney’s fees.Successfully defended a company that was alleged to be a joint venture partner with a debtor company, in an action brought by the debtor company’s creditor, resulting in no liability to the client. Obtained a jury verdict in excess of $300,000 for a property owner client whose property sustained water damage from an adjoining landowner.Obtained a complete defense verdict after a six week jury trial wherein our client, the president of an automobile manufacturing company, was accused of fraud, conversion and securities violations by an investor in and creditor of his company. Plaintiffs sought over $12 million in damages and were represented by a nationally known trial lawyer (who was a lead prosecutor in the government’s case against Ken Lay and Jeffery Skilling of ‘Enron’ fame). It was reported that this attorney had never previously “lost a case”. Plaintiffs spent millions of dollars in prosecuting the matter and had up to seven lawyers representing them at trial. Our client had only one lawyer defending the case: James G. Bohm.
