Trial, Real Property

Five day court trial in Bankruptcy Court. Included full electronic presentation of documents with live editing done by counsel using litigation support tools (no outside technology vendor). At one point during the trial the judge asked that we display the exhibits in lieu of the professional service retained by the opposing party. We obtained an unqualified decision and judgment in favor of our client on the validity of an option to purchase real property worth over $22 million, plus an award of attorney’s fees. Our client was a charitable foundation which had entered into the transaction for the purpose of ultimate ownership of the real property. The developer attempted (unsuccessfully) to renege on the transaction. We handled the litigation from inception through trial and our total bill was less than $600,000.
