Business Litigation Trial Rejects Claim and Awards Fees to Franchise Operator

Prevailed in multi-week jury trial representing a franchise operator being sued by a large international corporation.  We were able convince the jury that the corporation’s true motive for the suit was to trump up technical arguments for wrongful termination of the franchise agreement so that the corporation could take over the profits that the franchise operator had developed.  In the end, the jury completely rejected the corporation’s claim and awarded our client all of its almost $600,000 in attorneys’ fees.
