Casner & Edwards

Defense of client sued by a private equity firm

Donna M. Brewer served as co-counsel with the Atlanta firm of Sutherland, Asbill & Brennan in the defense of a client sued by a private equity firm for alleged breach of contract. The plaintiff alleged that the client failed to close on proposed acquisition financing and instead completed the acquisition through seller financing. There were highly contested issues concerning the meaning of the contract terms and whether the client’s conduct caused any loss to the plaintiff. After an 11-day trial in federal court, a jury returned a verdict in favor of our client.
