Representative Matter

Building owner

Obtained a full defense verdict in favor of firm client after a two-week jury trial in North Carolina Eastern District Court, Vance County, N.C. The case involved subrogation claims of $6.1 million brought against our client by a global insurance and financial services organization following a 2009 fire that destroyed a former tobacco facility then owned by our client. The insurance company brought the case as subrogee of the building’s tenant, which lost its inventory in the fire. The jury returned its unanimous verdict in favor of our client in less than 30 minutes.
