In hard-fought business litigation that lasted more than a year involving complex claims and cross-claims of fraud, breach of stock agreements, breach of loan agreements, defamation, intentional interference with contractual relations, intentional interference with prospective economic advantage, and indemnification, Bergeson, LLP was retained in February 2015 as lead trial counsel by Global Equipment Services and Manufacturing, Inc. (“GES”) and its CEO Don Tran (“Tran”) with less than two months before a series of trials were set to commence. After leading expedited discovery involving more than a dozen depositions, and navigating multiple ex parte applications and motions involving consolidation, continuance, amendment of the pleadings, judgment on the pleadings, expedited discovery, expert discovery, and writs of attachment, among others, Bergeson, LLP is pleased to announce that this case has settled. Bergeson LLP trial lawyers Daniel Bergeson, Vince Parrett, and John Pernick handled and resolved this matter for GES and Tran.
Bergeson, LLP is pleased to announce the opening of its San Francisco office at 101 California Street, within the heart of the city’s financial and business district. This expansion will provide easy access for the firm’s high-tech client base to meet with Bergeson, LLP attorneys. John Pernick, formerly a partner in Bingham McCutchen’s securities litigation department in San Francisco, will head up the office for Bergeson, LLP.
