Coughlin Duffy offers a wide range of legal services, including all types of litigation and transactional services, for corporate, institutional, governmental, and individual clients.
These case studies illustrate the type of work we do and how we have helped a wide range of clients.
- Jury Verdict Favors Defendant
Despite a prior liability finding against our client, we avoided any damage exposure by successfully arguing to the jury that the damages were all pre-existing.
- Up in Smoke
A case that started out as a complex, multi-suit, consolidated action was slowly whittled down to a single personal injury claim that was ultimately dismissed by the Court. A total victory was achieved for our client.
- Coughlin Duffy Trial Team Obtains Favorable Results
In an insurance coverage action arising from asbestos-related bodily injury actions, Coughlin Duffy attorneys secured favorable decisions, both on summary judgment and after trial, that significantly impact the insurance industry under Connecticut law.
- Knowing The Applicable Law Is Critical
Coughlin Duffy’s client was a medical stop-loss insurer who reinsured a self-insured health benefit plan. One of its policyholders, a union that provided its members with health benefits through a self-insured health and welfare benefit plan, filed suit in federal court seeking to apply the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”) and the ERISA statutory duties and penalties to the relationship.
- When The Call To The Bullpen Came, Coughlin Duffy Was Able To Close The Deal
Our insurance company client was mired in a decade long litigation in a multi-site multi-million dollar environmental claim litigation seeking coverage for pollution at a number of sites across the country under numerous insurance policies.
- Historic New Jersey Venue Agreement
In November 2018, Coughlin Duffy LLP successfully completed a substantial transaction for our client, a popular and historic New Jersey hotel and venue, in a complex real estate agreement worth nearly $4M.
- Giralda Farms Acquisition
Coughlin Duffy recently handled the purchase of the remaining undeveloped land at the Giralda Farms office park in Chatham Township. At $14.1 Million, most of which was funded by County agencies, this was the largest open space acquisition in the history of Morris County’s Open Space Trust Fund.
