Cozen O’Connor: Cozen O’Connor Team Secures Motion for Nonsuit

Cozen O’Connor Team Secures Motion for Nonsuit

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Jeffrey Weil, Dexter Hamilton and a team of Cozen O’Connor litigators successfully defended a mid-sized, regional law firm and one of its senior corporate partners in a legal malpractice case brought in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. The case involved an underlying business transaction that went bad. Our law firm clients had represented a closely held corporation whose stock was sold to a publicly traded company. When the sellers failed to get paid in full for their stock, they sued the law firm, alleging that the law firm represented them individually and should have done more to protect them from the deal going bad. After more than a week of jury trial (including expert testimony on behalf of the plaintiff), the Court granted our motion for nonsuit at the close of plaintiffs’ case.  The Cozen O’Connor team included Tamar Wise, Kaitlin Moredock, Bernadette Plefka and Jim Mulcahy.
