Confidential Client

We represented a liquidator who sued the two other liquidators and several members of the family during a succession that granted the liquidators the power to act by majority. In addition to criticizing the conduct of the two other liquidators when settling the estate, the liquidator identified claims against other members of the family for several million dollars. The liquidator alleged that the defendants had profited from the deceased’s incapacity. Three days of pleadings were necessary to deal with all the preliminary issues: The plaintiff asked for documents concerning the deceased in order to perform his work as liquidator and obtain payment of his legal fees. These two requests were accepted. The request to replace the third liquidator was taken under reserve pending further submissions. The various motions by the defendants to dismiss the action, strike allegations and obtain other orders were all dismissed. Leave to appeal was filed, but the case was settled in the interim.
