Nevada Supreme Court Affirms Ruling in Favor of Publicly Traded Client

Prevailed in corporate litigation appeal before the Nevada Supreme Court. Shareholders invoked the "substantial benefit" doctrine and demanded that our client, a publicly traded corporation, pay $250,000 in attorney's fees because the corporation took corrective action in response to the Shareholders' demand letter. The Shareholders, however, never filed suit on the corrective action. The Nevada Supreme Court held that the substantial benefit doctrine in Nevada (analogously called the "corporate benefit doctrine" in Delaware) requires predicate litigation before shareholders can recover attorney's fees. This was a case of first impression for a state supreme court and implicates shareholder litigation across the nation.
