- Successfully defended a local company against claims of tortious interference and violations of Florida’s Uniform Trade Secrets Act by assisting the client in resolving the dispute at mediation for a cost-effective and extremely positive result.
- Obtained a final judgment in favor of a firm client giving them the right to immediately collect on a multimillion-dollar judgment, and thwarted the improper efforts of a judgment debtor to avoid the client’s collection efforts. Acted as lead trial counsel in a multi-day trial in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida.
- Successfully resolved a multimillion-dollar shareholder dispute prior to the clients being forced to expend significant legal fees in a lengthy lawsuit by negotiating an amicable resolution, despite the existence of difficult contractual terms in a poorly drafted shareholder agreement. Ultimately, assisted the clients in drafting a new shareholder agreement, which excluded the disputing shareholder, and gave the clients their business back.
