Jury Trial Win For WGK’s Broker Dealer Client

WGK attorneys, George Guerra and Dominique Heller, successfully defended a claim against a broker-dealer for refusing to execute a trade that had been confirmed in error.  The plaintiff, a hedge fund, sought approximately $600,000 in damages and interest. It also sought attorneys’ fees and costs for the purported breach of contract. The Pinellas County jury’s unanimous defense verdict will now allow the broker-dealer to recover its attorneys’ fees from the plaintiff.
