1/11/2010 - Tyson Partners, L.P., f/k/a Altaris Partners, LLC
In a proceeding before the American Arbitration Association, we worked with Rob Cohen, Joe Serino, David Flugman, and Melody Wells of Kirkland & Ellis LLP on behalf of Tyson Partners L.P. (formerly known as Altaris Partners LLC). Tyson Partners claimed, among other things, that AIG Global Asset Management Holdings Corp. failed to fulfill its funding obligations under the parties’ joint venture contract. Compass Lexecon expert David Mordecai, working closely with Vince Warther of Compass Lexecon’s Chicago office, testified regarding industry practices with regard to such funding obligations as well as the economics of those obligations. The arbitration panel found for Tyson Partners on all claims and awarded all costs and attorneys’ fees.
