Representative Matters

Obtained a substantial victory for the franchisor of international sales training programs in a case alleging breach of contract and fraud, and seeking compensatory damages in excess of $85 million, punitive damages, injunctive relief, and attorneys’ fees. Brought by a franchisee, the case concerned the creation and sale of intellectual property rights. Following six days of trial before Judge J. Frederick Motz in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, the plaintiff agreed to a settlement in a sum representing less than ½ of Plaintiff’s claimed attorneys’ fees sought, and less than 1% Plaintiff’s claimed compensatory damages claim. The settlement achieved the client’s principal goal -- a complete termination of the relationship and all contracts between the parties.
