Representative Matters of Note
- Successfully represented an oppressed shareholder of a privately-held company, and scored a $3.2 million judgment and separate attorney fee award for the client. The case involved claims under the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act, breach of fiduciary duties, and both compensatory and punitive damages, as well as a referral to the state attorney general / prosecutor’s office for alleged criminal behavior. The case involved a successful family business with an innovative product and a renowned reputation in the science, academic, medical and defense industries. Following more than five years of litigation due to, among a myriad of issues, defense’s failure to respond to the Court’s requests, it was found that our client was routinely defrauded by the defendant, including illegal transfer of a substantial number of company assets.
