Attorney Profile

Jeremy Wallison's practice focuses on trial court, appellate and arbitral litigation of complex business disputes. Notable victories for clients include:

• Recovered $3.9 million of a $4 million judgment obtained against an empty shell corporation by using veil-piercing and fraudulent claims to recover that amount from the judgment debtor’s owner and affiliates;

• Obtained judgment against defaulted borrower for full amount of outstanding debt, then obtained dismissal of borrower's countersuit for fraud and breach of contract, then won judgment against borrower for the full amount of legal fees incurred in defending the countersuit (as an indemnified cost of "enforcement" of the contract), and then successfully defended dismissal and legal fees award on appeal;

• Won dismissal of securities fraud class action suit on the basis of an argument the court termed a "novel theory" – that the likely failure of the fraudulent scheme alleged precludes an inference of fraudulent intent;

• Obtained appellate court reversal holding that oral acceptance of a competitive bid gives rise to contractual liability even when the parties contemplated subsequent negotiation and preparation of definitive deal documents;

• Won arbitration of complex commercial lease dispute by establishing that GAAP, for purposes of calculating an amount due under a private contract, permits accounting methodologies inconsistent with those used in the client's general purpose GAAP financial statements; and

• Obtained appellate court reversal establishing a corporation's right to assert attorney-client privilege protection against a corporate director suing solely in a shareholder capacity.

In addition to the above, Mr. Wallison has litigated a diverse range of claims involving contract formation and breach, appraisal rights for dissenting shareholders, business divorce (both corporate and partnership), director and officer liability for breach of fiduciary duty, illegal dividends and illegal stock repurchases, creditors' rights (including debt collection, fraudulent conveyance and breach of indenture), securities and common law fraud, clearing agent liability, antitrust violations, art law, false advertising, defamation, tortious interference with contract, trademark and copyright, employment-related issues (including ERISA claims, violations of non-competition agreements, and retaliation), product liability, sales and secured transactions under the Uniform Commercial Code, judgment enforcement and professional malpractice.

Mr. Wallison also has substantial experience litigating international disputes and the issues that frequently arise therein, including choice of law, choice of forum and cross border discovery. Global Law Experts recommends him for arbitration and the International Referral Group recommends him for business litigation. He currently represents clients located in France, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Mr. Wallison's firm, Wallison & Wallison, offers fee structures designed to reward efficiency and value, including contingency fee and other alternative fee arrangements. Prior to forming Wallison & Wallison, Mr. Wallison was a partner at Foley & Lardner.
