In May 2009, a San Antonio jury ruled in favor of Carter & Bachynsky’s client, an inventor, returning a verdict against a major international law firm after a month-long trial. This legal malpractice case settled confidentially before entry of judgment. The National Law Journal/Verdict Search ranked the verdict in this case as the 25th largest jury verdict in the United States for 2009.

Julius Glickman and Darryl Carter represented three law firms whose former client refused to honor a contract to pay legal fees in a trade secrets case. The former client alleged malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty against the lawyers. We obtained a favorable arbitration award after presenting evidence for 34 days with 18 witnesses and over 400 exhibits. The award entitled our clients to their full contractual fee based upon royalties and other payments. The losing party challenged the arbitration award through the judicial process, and the courts upheld the award in its entirety. Tanox, Inc. v. Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, L.L.P., et. al., 105 S.W.3rd 244 (Tex App.-Houston [14th Dist.] 2003, pet. denied).
