Partners John Bowerbank and Laura Noroski achieved a hard-fought, successful result for the firm's client in a recently-released arbitration decision. Mr. Bowerbank and his team expertly handled the contentious dispute, which revolved around a multi-million dollar oceanfront property in Laguna Beach. The clients, long time owners of the majority share of the multi-level property, were sued by one of the prior co-owners just after a seven-figure buy-out. The case included complicating factors such as faulty construction, unlicensed contractors and City zoning violations. Mr. Bowerbank and his team launched an aggressive counter-attack on the plaintiff. This strategy paid off as the clients did not have to pay a single penny to the plaintiff, while the plaintiff was ordered to pay damages to the firm's clients. Mr. Bowerbank and Ms. Noroski handled the case aggressively and efficiently in true GRBB fashion for a decisive victory.
