Trial Victory Defeating $30 Million Fraud and Misrepresentation Claim

Leading Homebuilder
Obtained a full victory at trial on behalf of Lennar Corporation, one of the nation's leading homebuilders, turning a $30 million fraud and misrepresentation claim against our client into a $14 million victory in our client's favor. Olivia's Savannah, LLC, and its private lender, sued Lennar claiming they had been fraudulently induced to purchase 220 acres of raw land. Our team successfully counterclaimed, obtaining $14 million in defaulted mortgage payments for Lennar and also obtaining a foreclosure judgment that allowed Lennar to recover title to the 220 acres of land.
