Attorney Stan Doerrer recently defended a Washington DC business-owner against an arbitration claim demanding $136,000 in damages, plus attorneys’ fees. The Claimant sought arbitration before the before the American Arbitration Association (AAA), and brought breach of contract, fraud, negligence, and unjust enrichment claims under theories of direct and vicarious liability. After full discovery and a two-day arbitration hearing in which multiple witnesses testified, the Arbitrator completely vindicated Mr. Doerrer’s client by finding the client not at fault and awarding $0. The Arbitrator found that Mr. Doerrer’s client did not commit any fraud; was not unjustly enriched; that her actions did not constitute any form of negligence, and that there was insufficient evidence to find the client personally liable. Our client was fully vindicated in this matter. Please contact us if you are considering arbitration to resolve a business claim, or if you are party to an arbitration and want a vigorous defense.
