Fenwick & West Successfully Defends Intuit in Dispute Arising out of a Failed Joint Venture in Mexico

July 10, 2006

Fenwick defended Intuit in a dispute arising out of a purported and failed joint venture in Mexico. The Fenwick team won summary judgment on all claims two weeks before trial in a case in which the plaintiff asserted over $100 million in damages. The trial court’s summary judgment order was subsequently affirmed on appeal in a widely cited California Court of Appeal decision on oral contracts. Bustamante v. Intuit, 141 Cal.App.4th 199 (6th Dist. 2006). 

The Fenwick litigation team was led by Rodger Cole, Laurence Pulgram and Bryan Kohm.
