Adam D.H. Grant and Ryan T. Koczara prevailed in a contentious real estate dispute that pitted neighbor against neighbor in an upscale area of Los Angeles. Adam and Ryan litigated the matter aggressively right up until the day of trial, dispensing with four different opposing counsels in the process. The matter settled literally the morning of the trial. However, the defendant raised a dispute concerning the interpretation of the settlement agreement relating to an easement. Adam and Ryan litigated the dispute through arbitration.
Representing the Respondents, Messrs. Grant and Koczara effectively showed through detailed briefing, the testimony of their opponents’ expert witness, and the testimony of the Respondents’ expert, that Respondents’ interpretation of the settlement agreement and the scope of an easement was correct. In her decision, the Arbitrator also awarded the Respondents’ their attorney fees and costs.
Congratulations to Adam and Ryan on another well-deserved win!
