Attorney Client in a Legal Malpractice Case Arising From a Commercial Real Estate Transaction

Sean Ragland and Nicholas Hart prevailed for their attorney client in a legal malpractice case arising from a commercial real estate transaction. The Plaintiff was an LLC attempting to sell an office park. The LLC alleged that the attorney negligently failed to advise the LLC that it could not comply with a critical provision contained in a proposed 6.25 million dollar contract for the sale of the property. The LLC contended that the lawyer actually admitted in an email sent to the LLC that he had failed to even notice the provision when he reviewed the contract. The Plaintiff sought recovery of 1.1 million dollars in damages it claimed resulted from the botched transaction. After approximately 45 minutes of deliberations, a Jefferson Circuit Court jury returned a verdict for our client.
