Bruce Smith and Lee Darling won a $555,000 verdict in Denver District Court on a legal malpractice case against a prominent Colorado real estate firm. The case involved a complicated commercial real estate transaction in which DMSL proved the clients’ prior law firm failed to put in place important protections in the purchase documents. After entry of the verdict the case was then settled for $771,000 with the inclusion of costs and statutory interest. The firm also separately sued the mortgagee of the property to enforce a settlement agreement and prevailed in obtaining judgment and attorney fees.
