Dismissal of Cross-Complaint against Engineer. Harland represented a structural engineering client sued by the architect on a cross-complaint in a multi-million-dollar dispute related to a public works project in Santa Barbara County. After a multi-state investigation into the architect, LMM determined that the architect had failed to maintain its ability to transact business in California, had been dissolved in the state where it was formed, and thus had no standing to sue LMM’s client. Through novel motion practice, first to dismiss the architect’s cross-claims, then to dismiss the intervening insurer’s claims, LMM secured orders dismissing the case entirely as to their client.

Successful Resolution of Commercial Lease Dispute. Steve and LMM represented a national architecture firm in a dispute against its landlord in a high-rise building in Southern California. The landlord’s failure to maintain the premises caused a business interruption for the firm. After initiating arbitration proceedings on the client’s behalf, Steve successfully resolved the matter with the landlord and shepherded the process through a coverage dispute under the firm’s business interruption policy, allowing the client to recover on multiple fronts to make itself whole.
