CH& Successfully Defends West Mountain Golf Course $7 Million Dollar Bankruptcy Claims
Two partners that guaranteed lease payments for an Idaho golf course filed bankruptcy. For four years, the well-defended bankrupt developers steadfastly refused to pay any portion of the $7 million guarantees. Debtors’ attorneys caused the golf course owner to expend so much in attorney’s fees over that time period that they could no longer afford legal representation.
How CH& Helped:
Client had been unsuccessful in litigation for many years, could no longer afford legal representation, but had a bona fide and valuable claim. CH& was able to analyze the legal issues, proposed an alternate fee arrangement, and then aggressively litigated to obtain a surprisingly successful recovery for the client.
Comprehensive knowledge of local bankruptcy courts and bankruptcy law enabled CH& to obtain a successful result when the client was faced with aggressive opposing counsel and the chips were down. CH& was able to:
- Create flexible fee arrangements for cash flow-poor client with meritorious legal claims, and
- Achieve successful settlement as a result of an active litigation strategy
