The Firm represented a national franchisor in a four-day arbitration in Austin, Texas before the American Arbitration Association, and obtained an injunction against a former franchisee who was unlawfully competing. The case, captioned My Goodness! Games, Inc., v. Loren Andrew Willcock, AAA case No. 01-16-0004-8766, upheld the validity of the franchisor's two-year noncompete and enjoined the respondent from operating within a 50-mile radius of its former territories. The Firm was also awarded the entirety of its attorneys fees.
The Firm won an appeal before the New York 2nd Department Appellate Division, overturning a $1.2 million judgment entered against its client. Retained post-judgment to prosecute the appeal, the Firm succeeded in overturning a judgment in a court where on average, less than 10% of judgments get overturned.
The decision is PAL Environmental Services, Inc. v. LJC Dismantling Corp., New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department, Index # 2015-11743, __AD3d ___
