Significant Representative Matters

  • Obtained summary judgment on behalf of a large retail corporation and related entities in a case where Plaintiff was blown off a roof during the contruction of a regional distribution center and severely injured. Plaintiff made a demand of $9.2 million to the retail corporation after discovery had concluded. The Court granted summary judgment on the basis that the retail corporation, which was both the landowner and the general contractor of the project, was not responsible for the acts or omissions of its independent contractor. 

  • Successfully defended a building owner at a construction site in a premises liability case involving a significantly injured plaintiff where the demand was $12.5 million by showing that the owner was entitled to defense and indemnification from the general contractor of the job. 

  • Defended large amusement park in class action brought by season ticket holders alleging breach of contract. Obtained summary judgment, which was affirmed by the appellate court.  

  • Defended electrical contractor in a series of substantial construction defect cases brought by owners of newly constructed multi-million dollar homes in several developments.
