SCM turns a defense case into a judgment of more than $340,000 for its clients

A trial team led by Robert B. Cummings, with primary assistance from Brenda Weinberg and Whitney Warnick, recently obtained a judgment of more than $340,000 in favor of the firm’s client. The plaintiff filed a lawsuit against SCM’s client alleging breaches of fiduciary duties and related claims stemming from what the plaintiff believed was an unlawful theft of customers. Mr. Cummings successfully defended the client against a preliminary injunction and assisted the client with filing a claim for dissolution of the plaintiff corporation. The plaintiff elected to purchase company shares but claimed the plaintiff corporation was worth nothing. That led to a trial to determine the value of SCM’s clients’ shares in the plaintiff corporation, which resulted in the court determining the company was worth 7-figures – well over the plaintiff’s claimed negative valuation.
