Secured a favorable jury verdict on behalf of a licensed life settlement provider after a two-week trial in federal court in which a large, international conglomerate alleged that it had been defrauded into overpaying for 12 life insurance policies and that the client had an undisclosed fee-sharing agreement with third-party intermediaries. After deliberating for less than five hours, the jury returned a verdict for our client, including on its defensive counterclaim.
