Obtained A $54 million jury verdict for ski resort company against land owner who obstructed development rights

Obtained a $54 million jury verdict for ski resort company against land owner who obstructed development rights. After the ski resort company invested millions in building up Canyons ski resort to enhance its development rights, the owner and landlord of the property attempted to terminate the lease and assume the development rights. After six years of legal maneuvering and seven weeks of trial, the jury ruled that the landlord owed the ski resort company $54 million in damages plus $6 million in attorney fees and court costs. This was one of the largest jury verdicts ever awarded in the State.
