King County hired our client, an international technology company, to construct a system for use on public transportation. After one of our client’s subcontractors supplied faulty devices that led to the costly replacement of various units, we filed suit in federal court for breach of contract, breach of contractual warranties, and breach of implied warranties.
The contract at issue did not contain a prevailing party clause, and our strategy from the beginning was to facilitate settlement very early in the litigation process—so as to avoid significant attorneys’ fees and costly discovery.
Less than two months after filing the complaint, the parties agreed to promptly mediate this case. Each side provided materials and written argument supporting their respective claims, and a settlement was reached after several hours of mediation. A favorable outcome, with minimal cost to the client.
Our client was a lender seeking repayment of a multi-million dollar commercial loan to a failed developer. After filing a lawsuit against the guarantor of the loan, we prevailed via summary judgment against the guarantor and his community property.
Our client was the incumbent contractor performing armed security guard services at various locations for the Bonneville Power Administration (“BPA”). When that contract neared the end of its term, BPA issued a new solicitation for the work.
Our client was the electrical subcontractor on the $178 million Bassett Army Hospital on Fort Wainwright, Alaska. Our client incurred millions of dollars of additional, increased costs caused by a variety or circumstances—including defective specifications and delay and disruption.
Our client, a general contractor on a large federal project in Texas, faced a multi-million dollar claim brought by a subcontractor under the Miller Act. The subcontractor alleged various impacts and delays for which it blamed our client.
