Verdict/award

Court Compelled Distribution of LLC Interest

WWHGD client Bruce Thames was a beneficiary under the will of Robert Suttles under which he was to receive Suttles' interest in certain substantial LLC's.  The executor did not distribute the LLC interests for seven years and then contended that the will should be construed so that Thames would not be entitled to the LLC interests.  After a bench trial, the Probate Court construed the will in our client's favor and ordered distribution of the LLC interests to him.  Gary Toman was lead counsel for Mr. Thames.
