Mohaghegh & Associates fends off a $545000 damage suit
In January 2016, the Court of Appealing decided that Analytik Jena AG, represented by Mohaghegh & Associates had won its battle against an Iranian chemical company. The case concerned a cross-border transaction and the claimant had filed a damage claim petition for breaching the contract. To defend the German company, Analytik Jena AG, firstly we had to establish that the contract had not been concluded yet between the parties. Benefiting from contract law and international trading experts, we strongly argued that the business communications are not binding at negotiation levels.
Victory in 7 years fight for justice awarded $23million to Mohaghegh & Associates’ client
Mr Gol had a family business together with his wife, sons and daughters. The business had significant capital assets including commercial properties, warehouses, plants and farms as well as its substantive profits. However, over the time, family disputes between the shareholders amounted to the business dissolution when Gol’s family decided to instruct Mohaghegh & Associates concerning their shareholders’ rights. The case involved complex claims that required extensive work for collecting witness and expert evidence. In parallel, we had to establish a claim for a property conveyance between Mr Gol and his older son whilst Mr Gol had denied the contract. Additionally, there were a number of properties hidden by Mr Gol and we had to build up compelling evidence to prove our client’s entitlement on those assets. After 7 years fighting for our client, eventually we celebrated our victory of $23 million award for our clients.
