Case Study: Successful Defense and Recovery of Attorney Fees for Shareholder Client

By June 29, 2023May 6th, 2024No Comments

Our law firm, Lanak & Hanna, recently represented a shareholder of a prominent construction corporation in a complex legal dispute involving construction law. The case involved allegations of breach of contract and fraud brought by a homeowner against both the construction corporation and our shareholder client in her individual capacity.

Through diligent preparation and strategic legal maneuvers, our team at Lanak & Hanna was able to achieve a favorable outcome for our client. At the trial, we successfully refuted the fraud claim and presented compelling evidence demonstrating that our shareholder client was not a party to the disputed contract.

It is worth noting that the contract in question contained a provision allowing for the recovery of attorney fees. Leveraging this provision, we sought to secure the rightful compensation for our client’s legal expenses incurred throughout the litigation process.

Following the trial, our relentless pursuit of justice continued as we filed a post-judgment attorney fees motion on behalf of the shareholder. Drawing upon our extensive knowledge of the law and meticulous attention to detail, we crafted a persuasive argument highlighting the merit of our client’s position.

We are pleased to announce that our efforts were met with resounding success. The court granted our post-judgment attorney fees motion, awarding our client every dollar requested in our motion. This outcome not only vindicated our shareholder client but also ensured that they were adequately compensated for the financial burden imposed by this legal battle.

Lanak & Hanna’s triumph in this case is a testament to our unwavering commitment to our clients’ interests and our exceptional advocacy skills. We take pride in providing top-tier legal representation and delivering favorable results that align with our clients’ objectives.
