DRI's The Voice Highlights $1.5 Million Win in Construction Breach of Contract Case

The Voice, a publication of the Defense Research Institute, highlighted a recent Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP matter in its "And The Defense Wins" section.

According to The Voice: 

"Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP attorneys and DRI members Michael A. McCaskey (partner), A. Jay Koehler (partner), David J. Welch (associate), Edward J. Keating (associate), and Benjamin D. Lothson (associate) won a $1.5 million award and defeated a $3.9 million counterclaim after a week of oral hearings tried before the AAA Construction Industry Tribunal. All five of the attorneys practice in the firm’s Chicago office.

Swanson Martin & Bell LLP represented G&L Associates, Inc. in a dispute with general contractor James McHugh Construction Company. The dispute arose from a 13-story, mixed-use construction project known as Vue53, located in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. The arbitrator issued a 44-page award after a week of live testimony from eight fact and expert witnesses. The arbitration resulted in a net judgment of $1,501,471.63 in favor of G&L, including an award of attorneys’ fees and administrative fees."
