Technology Consultants

Montgomery McCracken defended a leading management and technology consulting and solutions provider in a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed in Chester County, PA by a large national computer distributor. The lawsuit alleged that the distributor was unable to implement a computer system recommended by the consulting firm, causing the distributor $800 million in damages. The consulting firm asserted a counterclaim for $4.9 million in unpaid fees, expenses and interest. We obtained summary judgment for our client on the professional malpractice claim and other tort claims. After jury selection, the parties entered into a confidential settlement that represented a decisive victory for our client on the two remaining claims. As a result, our client avoided what area newspapers predicted would have been one of the lengthiest trials in Chester County history, as well as any liability exposure.
