The Firm secured an $11.5 million judgment for the Delaware holding company of a Brazilian telecommunications company. Earlier in the case the New York court found the defendant liable for failing to make a multimillion-dollar investment. The case was scheduled for a damages trial. But when the COVID crisis postponed the trial, and the defendant resisted proceeding remotely, litigation partners Zeb Landsman and Jesse Conan devised a creative legal solution and asked the court to award damages in the amount of $7.5 million, without a trial, based on certain undisputed facts. The court agreed, assessed the damages submissions by the parties, and ruled the client was entitled to $7,499,900, plus interest.
