LECLAIR RYAN WINS $60M POWER PLANT CASE FOR OWNER
Representing the owner of a $250M power plant project against a large general contractor, LeClair Ryan attorneys Tom Wolf and John Craddock prevailed in a three-week trial in federal court. The court awarded LeClair Ryan’s client more than $11M in damages, plus 100% of their attorney’s fees. In addition, the court ruled against the general contractor on every one of its numerous counterclaims totaling more than $50M. The case involved more than 2,000,000 pages of documents and more than 2,000 trial exhibits. Wolf says that prevailing in the battle of experts was key to his client’s victory. “The contractor used four very well credentialed and highly paid experts. We were able to demonstrate that each of them significantly overreached in his opinions. Our experts kept their opinions simple and well grounded in the facts. We won the credibility battle hands down.”
