Represented a Supplier in Banking Litigation

Client: a granite countertop provider

Our client, a granite countertop provider, fell victim to wire transfer fraud.  Our client received an email, purportedly from a supplier, instructing it to wire money to a fraudulent account believed to be the supplier’s. The countertop provider’s bank received an alert, warning them the money was not going to an account bearing our client’s supplier’s name as intended, but the bank ultimately completed the transfer and the funds were lost. We represented our client in pre-litigation negotiation related to the stolen wire transfer funds. The case was ultimately settled.
