Breach of Contract and Fraud – Countersuit by BLG

BLG represented a steel processing company which employed the use of overhead lifting cranes in their facility. Our client was sued by its OSHA inspection and crane maintenance vendor for non-payment of invoices.

Upon investigation, it was determined that the Plaintiff vendor had routinely cut corners and misled BLG’s client as to the scope and quality of work performed. Our client filed a countersuit, alleging breach of contract, misrepresentation, fraud, and breach of implied warranties.

The matter was vigorously litigated, and settled on the eve of trial. BLG’s client was ultimately paid more than 10 times what Plaintiff had originally requested in damages, and Plaintiff took nothing from their affirmative case.
