Represented the plaintiff Trillium Ridge Condominium Association in pursuing claims for the defective design and construction of six high-end condominium buildings in the mountains of North Carolina, as well as claims for breach of fiduciary duty against the developers of the condos. After the North Carolina Court of Appeals unanimously reversed the trial court’s decision to dismiss the case, the Association’s claims went to trial, which lasted nearly two weeks. After all of the defendants’ motions for directed verdict were denied, and after closing arguments, the defendants agreed to settle all claims asserted by the Association for more than $3,000,000. This represents a near full recovery of all sums spent by the Association to repair the condominium buildings, including the repairs to two buildings that were completed outside of North Carolina’s six year statute of repose.
