Aggressive Discovery Strategy Allows the Show to Go On

A Fortune 500 engineering and construction company faced breach of contract claims in connection with the construction of a several hundred million dollar, state-of-the-art performing arts facility.  The litigation, which involved the company, owner of the facility, architects, subcontractors, and subconsultants, included the underlying claims brought by the owner as well as cross-claims filed by the company and several of its subcontractors.  In order to position itself to mediate the matter and to avoid millions of dollars of litigation costs, the company sought advice and counsel on an aggressive discovery plan, including the depositions of many key witnesses.  After several days of intense mediation, the parties agreed to a favorable settlement for the company.
