Willis Group, LLC and Seis-Strat Services, L.L.C. v. Antares Enterprises, L.P. et al.
Represented claimants Willis Group and Seis-Strat Services in a dispute arising out of Willis Group’s acquisition of a majority interest in Seis-Strat from Antares. Antares originally sued the clients in Texas state court, asserting claims of shareholder oppression and breaches of fiduciary duty against Willis Group and its principals and seeking appointment of a receiver and seven figures in damages. We successfully compelled the case to arbitration and initiated the arbitration proceeding so that our client, as claimants, could assert their fraud and breach of contract claims against Antares. The matter was arbitrated over the course of several weeks. Our clients were awarded damages in the seven figures, including recovery of attorneys’ fees, and Antares was awarded nothing on the claims it originally initiated as the state court plaintiff.
