Distribution company avoids liability – and (extended) attorneys’ fees

Posted by Charles H. Van Horn on

We represented a distribution and shipping company that imports and transports goods manufactured in China. When a dispute arose between a purchaser of goods and a Chinese manufacturer, our client, the distribution company, was brought into the lawsuit. The purchaser of goods filed a lawsuit against the Chinese manufacturer and our distribution company client. Berman Fink Van Horn attorneys swiftly obtained a dismissal of our client at the emergency injunction hearing, thereby avoiding possible liability in excess of $150,000 and attorneys’ fees if it remained a party for an extended period.
