Complete Arbitration Victory for National Commercial Real Estate Brokerage
July 25, 2023 Case Study
Beck Redden associate Cassie Maneen prevailed in a Dallas arbitration that favored firm client Matthews Real Estate Investment Services.
A Commercial Arbitration Tribunal awarded Matthews full damages, including costs, attorneys’ fees, and post-judgment interest after a multi-day hearing. Matthews, a national commercial real estate brokerage, filed its claims after a former client breached a listing agreement by refusing to pay a commission for the sale of commercial property and rebuked having signed an agreement at all. Throughout the case, Beck Redden, in partnership with Matthews, successfully compelled the dispute to arbitration before the American Arbitration Association and also effectively fended off multiple TRO requests. Cassie’s ability to provide efficient and effective counsel helped to maximize the award for Matthews while also successfully defending against counterclaims in the process.
