FH+H Negotiates Breach of Contract Settlement for Construction Client

Managing Partner Tom Craig and the FH+H litigation team successfully concluded arbitration on a breach of contract claim in a construction matter by negotiating a favorable settlement. FH+H’s client filed suit in arbitration pursuant to the parties’ agreement for outstanding payments and damages, while defendant counterclaimed and alleged that it was due more than it owed plaintiff. Together the claims were in the seven figures. Tom’s attention to detail, negotiating skills, and zealous representation of the client during arbitration compelled opposing counsel to increase its initial settlement offer by over 60%. In the end, the FH+H litigation team was able to obtain a substantial settlement for the client and a release of all liability related to the counterclaim.
