The firm has represented clients in many high profile and complex bench and jury trials in Southern Nevada, in both state and federal court, representing contractors, lenders, and owners on large commercial projects. The firm’s attorneys are also well-versed in alternative dispute resolution and have represented clients in many mediations, arbitrations, and agency hearings. The firm successfully defended a general contractor in a bench trial, which lasted intermittently for well over a year, arising out of the construction of a major Strip hotel. At the time, it was the longest bench trial in Clark County history. In Feb. 2007, the firm won a jury verdict in excess of $1 million in a case involving complex legal and construction issues.
The firm has also represented numerous lien claimants in various hotel construction priority trials, and recently successfully defended the lender against dozens of lien claimants relating to the construction of the Aladdin hotel/mall project in Las Vegas. The firm played a key role in the three-week federal jury trial against Equinox International, which resulted in the recovery of some $40 million for victims of an illegal pyramid scheme. Other trials include the Resort at Summerlin, MGM and Sunrise Suites Hotel. The firm also represented one of the main defendants (mechanical engineer) in the famous Hilton Hotel fire cases. The firm recently defended Bridgestone Japan from a major product liability claim, and has recently assisted PCL, one of North America’s largest general contractors, in a variety of disputes relating to the expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center and McCarran International Airport. In 2007, the firm has filed actions in both the USA capital matter and the SW Exchange case on behalf of lenders and investors.
