Matters

Federal Lending Violations

After our client faced a claim for alleged federal lending violations, our team succeeded at the trial court and then faced a challenge at the 9th Circuit.  Our team successfully navigated the process and preserved the win for the client.

Insurance – Additional Insured Endorsements

Newmeyer Dillion successfully worked with local counsel in another state to obtain an order overturning an unfavorable ruling on whether our client was an additional insured under a trade partner’s insurance policies. 

International Arbitration

Newmeyer Dillion’s client faced an international insurer that sought to force the client into a highly inconvenient forum overseas, in a fashion that would potentially leave the client facing the potential for inconsistent legal determinations between the arbitration and pending litigation involving another insurer.  After a win at the trial court, Newmeyer Dillion and its client prevailed on appeal, permitting the case to move forward in a consolidated fashion in California litigation. 

Right to Repair

Newmeyer Dillion has actively supported the building industry’s efforts to resolve homeowner claims through the Right to Repair law enacted by the California legislature.  As counsel for an amicus building industry association, Newmeyer Dillion has filed briefs in several matters to support and protect the right to repair, and participated in oral argument in the critical matter that resulted in an upholding of the builders’ position.
