Chicago Attorneys Mitchell Morinec and Katie Lonze Prevail in Commercial Litigation Trial

Chicago attorneys Mitchell P. Morinec and Katie S. Lonze successfully defended a client in a breach of contract trial in the Circuit Court of Dane County, Wisconsin.

The plaintiff, a major real estate developer, sued its former employee for breach of contract alleging, among other things, that he committed fraud against the developer's company.

After a bench trial, the judge ruled that no such fraud occurred, ruled in favor of Segal McCambridge's client, and awarded the plaintiff no damages. The contract at issue included an attorney's fees clause, which allows for the prevailing party at trial to recover its attorney's fees related to the litigation and trial.
