Lyons & Simmons Attorneys Win $1.1 Million Judgment in Texas Contract Dispute

DALLAS - A judge has confirmed an arbitration award of more than $1.1 million in favor of a management services company in a breach of contract dispute with a doctors group. On March 31, 2016, Judge Bonnie Goldstein of Dallas County's 44th District Court entered a judgment confirming the award in favor of the management services provider against a local urology group. Lyons & Simmons, LLP partners Michael Lyons and Christopher Simmons tried the case resulting in the seven-figure award.

The urology group sued its management services provider in September 2014, claiming $2.3 million in damages for an alleged breach of their services agreement. The services provider denied the claim and filed a countersuit, asserting breach of contract and seeking attorneys' fees. Following nearly a year and a half of litigation, the arbitrator dismissed all of the urology group's claims and found that the group was in breach of contract. The arbitrator awarded damages, attorneys' fees, and pre- and post-judgment interest in favor of the management services provider.

"We believe the arbitrator got it right," said Mr. Lyons. "We are happy for our client and proud of the result."

Lyons & Simmons, LLP, handles complex litigation matters in Texas and nationwide involving commercial litigation and catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death and products liability matters.
