The firm served as lead counsel on behalf of an outdoor advertising company in litigation brought by a shareholder who had sold his business to the company in exchange for cash and company stock.  He later filed a claim seeking damages under the federal and state securities laws and under a common law theory, claiming that the company had misled him about its current condition and its prospects when it had acquired his company.  We moved to compel arbitration of the shareholder's claims pursuant to an arbitration provision in the operating agreement that the shareholder signed.  That motion was granted, and the parties participated in a week long arbitration before a three person arbitration panel in Boston.  The arbitration panel rejected all of the shareholder's claims and awarded the company some of its expenses in defending against the claims.  The court later confirmed the arbitration award.
