C&S was trial counsel for a large reinsurer in trials against a rogue agent in Texas. The firm won the first trial, and on appeal, the case was remanded for additional damages. C&S also won the second trial, with the court awarding the full measure of damages sought.
C&S has consistently won jury trials, bench trials, appeals, and arbitrations since its inception. The lawyers are proud of the winning record. C&S attorneys take strategy and preparation very seriously, from the beginning of the case until the judgment is signed.
C&S won one of the largest judgments awarded in a jury trial in Lavaca County, Texas. The firm represented a seismic contractor against an oil company. The jury awarded 100% of the damages sought. The jury also awarded more in attorneys’ fees than was requested.
C&S has handled a variety of cases involving personal injury and wrongful death, involving criminal and negligent conduct.
C&S has assisted in emergency actions—temporary restraining orders and injunctions, in situations involving business divorce, land disputes, and even family law disputes over the guardianship of a person in “locked-in syndrome.”
Business disputes of every kind are another day at the office for C&S lawyers. Recent cases include:
Business divorce of partners in a prominent magazine, along with subsequent litigation to enforce the terms of a settlement agreement.
Representation of a CEO of a large oil and gas exploration and development company, in shareholder or partner litigation in four venues. The litigation was in federal and state courts in New York and Texas, with witnesses in Canada and England.
Representation of a franchisee of restaurants in four separate cases in federal and state courts in Atlanta, Georgia, and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
Ongoing litigation in complicated, multimillion-dollar real property disputes. Current representation includes an action to quiet title for the improper conveyance of an expectancy interest in land by the beneficiary of a trust, as well as the defense of claims against a C&S client for water diversion causing flooding of a condominium complex.
