Venable partner Doug Baldridge was quoted in an April 13, 2012 Law360 article on a recent victory before the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of Lion Associates LLC.

Lion Associates agreed to provide consulting services to a government contractor to secure contracts for its military vessels. After winning a $180 million contract, the contractor refused to pay Lion Associates arguing the company identified and pursued the contract before it entered into the contract with Lion. Last week, the Fourth Circuit overturned a lower court’s ruling against Lion Associates ruling the breach of contract claim should be reinstated because of an ambiguous contract provision.

Baldridge called the Fourth Circuit’s ruling a “complete victory” for Lion Associates, adding, “We're very pleased that the Fourth Circuit saw it our way and now our client will have his day in court.”
