Residential Mortgage, Breach of Contract – Defense Verdict

Philadelphia partner James Kahn and associate Jen Coatsworth received a defense verdict after a 12-day arbitration in a claim involving allegations of breach of contract and consumer deception in a residential mortgage program. They were successful in obtaining an order removing the case to arbitration over the plaintiff’s refusal, and then defeated multiple claims brought by the plaintiff in the arbitration which were supported by three experts called by plaintiff.

The defendant’s general counsel wrote to Mr. Kahn, stating: “Thank you very, very much for all of your work on this! You and Jen did an amazing job and we are incredibly grateful. It would be impossible to overstate how thrilled we are with these results. Congratulations to all on a job well done.”
