Lawsuit Successfully Defended
Tishkoff defended our client, a limited liability company (“LLC”) member, from a $36 million, derivative liability arbitration claim by the LLC co-member. The Virginia Supreme Court vacated the resulting arbitration award of $12 million against Tishkoff’s client, agreeing with Tishkoff’s argument in the arbitration that the derivative liability claim could not be subject to the arbitration clause of the LLC operating agreement.
Breach of Employment, Stock Rights Contract Award
As appearing in MI Lawyers Weekly, this award was the second largest arbitration award in Michigan for the year 2016. Our client was hired as Vice President and General Manager of a company in Southwest Michigan pursuant to a five-year contract. After the employer terminated our client, our business attorneys brought a lawsuit for breach of contract. The arbitrators found our client was entitled to damages on both the breach of employment contract and breach of stock rights contract, and therefore awarded $1.572 Million.
Breach of Contract
