The firm served as lead counsel for Ameron International Corp., a leading manufacturer of large diameter piping for the petrochemical industry. The claimant was the former owner of a company acquired by Ameron who alleged that he was due additional monies under the parties’ earn-out agreement. The firm successfully defended the claim, with the arbitrator finding that the accounting policies followed by the former owner failed to comply with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. That ruling resulted in lower revenue totals and the former owners’ failure to meet the revenue goals established in the parties’ earn-out agreement.
