GED wins reversal of attorneys' fee award on appeal

On January 4, 2023, GED successfully appealed an attorneys' fee award of close to $700,000 against its client. A limited partner in a real estate development project had sued multiple general partners regarding claims about various partnership agreements. The limited partner voluntarily dismissed its case, but the trial court awarded the general partners attorneys' fees. GED, led by its certified appellate specialist Marc Eisenhart, and argued by Steven McLellan, convinced the Court of Appeal that the trial court erred in awarding such fees.
