TWO INTERACT FIRMS COLLABORATE TO ACHIEVE INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION WIN FOR MUTUAL CLIENT

Recently, an International Arbitration Tribunal rendered a final award rejecting all claims against a German client of Interact Member firms LJH Lindlbauer PartmbB (Germany) and Shook Hardy & Bacon (USA).  The Tribunal also awarded the client more than $500,000 for fees and costs.

Markus Munzenmaier from LJH Lindlbauer worked together at each stage with Bill Vita and Giovanni Angles from Shook to brief legal issues and present defenses for the client.  All three attorneys represented the respondent client in a two day mediation hearing, with live testimony, in Boston.  In the end, the Tribunal accepted the client’s main defense and ruled that the Tribunal lacked jurisdiction over the German client, because the client never signed the key agreement which gave rise to the arbitration.   The Claimant sought approximately $16 million (USD) and actually won a $9 million (USD) award against another respondent which was represented by a different law firm.

Interact was instrumental in bringing these two firms together to work closely throughout two years of the arbitration process to protect the client and achieve a resounding victory.
