Achieving results through impassioned advocacy

When the largest, most complex construction case hit the Greater Cincinnati area, 15 contractors turned to BYH for legal representation. Kenwood Towne Place, a $150 million commercial, mixed-use project with a 2500-space public parking garage, adjoined the area’s most upscale mall and was riding high expectations. It went bust in November 2008, leaving an eight-story office tower skeleton rusting along I-71.

Of the over 60 contractors owed in excess of $40 million, BYH partnered with a group of 15. Applying innovative fee sharing arrangements and contingent fee agreements, BYH successfully prosecuted the case for substantial recovery; other contractors—not represented by BYH—received little or no payment.
