We successfully represented a public company in an 18-month Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation related to accounting and disclosure issues, resulting in a decision by the SEC to terminate the investigation and recommend that no enforcement action be taken. In defending the company, we responded to requests for documents and information, presented to the SEC and represented company officials at in-person meetings with the SEC.

Represented Wolf Tree, Inc. in defense of negligence and nuisance claims alleging that hazardous trees fell on power lines causing two spot fires and sought approximately $45 million in damages. We succeeded succeeded in consolidating the nine cases into two cases before two different judges in the same court and then succeeded in obtaining summary judgment on the first consolidated case in the fall of 2020, where the court agreed that as a matter of law, plaintiffs could not meet their burden of showing that Wolf Tree had a duty to inspect the trees at issue, which were outside of the right of way they contracted to trim. In May 2021, the judge on the second consolidated case also issued a ruling in our client’s favor and granted our summary judgment motion on the same grounds that the plaintiff could not meet its burden to show that Wolf Tree had a duty to inspect the trees at issue, and thus its negligence and nuisance claims failed as a matter of law.
