Litigation Win for Cohen and Vicario

Jon Cohen, a partner in the Stahl Cowen litigation group, and Rebecca Vicario, an associate, secured the dismissal, with prejudice, of a lawsuit pending against a closely held corporation. The lawsuit, which was pending for nearly nine months, involved a minority shareholder of the corporation who sued the corporation and its majority shareholder for an alleged breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, conversion and other violations of the Illinois Business Corporation Act. After the minority shareholder refused to participate in settlement negotiations, Cohen and Vicario took an aggressive approach, filing and ultimately winning three motions to dismiss, and thereby saving the client the costs of discovery and excessive litigation.
