  • In Micromuse, Inc. v. The Estate of Christopher Dawes, we represented the defendant (the estate of a recently deceased high tech entrepreneur), where plaintiff claimed hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for breach of a joint venture agreement.  After extensive discovery, our client prevailed on summary judgment, and final judgment entered for the estate, with costs, on March 2, 2004.
  • In American Process Equipment Co. v. Atlantic Mutual Insurance Co., AKZ represented the plaintiff engineering firm whose machinery was seriously damaged by heavy rain .  After Atlantic Mutual denied coverage, we tried the case in Massachusetts federal court and obtained a jury verdict awarding our client the full insurance coverage in excess of $4.7 million.
