Defense of Architecture Firm for Claims Made by National Real Estate Developer

Coleman & Erickson has defended a long-term architecture client in several condominium/multifamily housing cases. In one case, we obtained dismissal based upon failure to state a claim or failure to comply with the Minnesota export affidavit statute. In two cases, other dismissal was based on failure to comply with MN statute 544.42, the export affidavit requirement. In another, we positioned the client through negotiations so they can get released from the case with prejudice without having to proceed through costly litigation.

Such cases are normal for architecture clients, but they could represent significant damage to the bottom line in both direct costs and future insurance premiums.
