Experience

Chemed Corporation v. PCI Holding Corp., et al.

We represented Chemed Corporation and its subsidiary Vitas Healthcare Corporation in litigation which we initiated on behalf of Chemed to collect disputed amounts owed as a result of a sale of a former Chemed home health care subsidiary. The defendant asserted numerous counterclaims for breach of contract and alleged fraud and misrepresentation in connection with the sale. After the filing of summary judgment and numerous other pretrial motions, the case was successfully settled shortly before trial.

Nash Finch Company Litigation

We were lead counsel for grocery wholesaler Nash Finch Company and its subsidiary Super Food Services, Inc. in "Fleming" suit brought against Nash Finch/Super Food by grocery retailers alleging breach of contract, fraud and other claims arising out of prices charged retailers for goods and services. Summary judgment for Nash Finch and Super Food on all claims was affirmed on appeal. Super Food Services v. Munafo, Inc., 2000 Ohio App. LEXIS 779. We have subsequently been lead counsel for Nash Finch and Super Food in numerous other cases from 2001 through the present in Ohio and Kentucky involving breach of contract, fraud, antitrust, consumer protection and related claims.
