Partner Peyton Healey, who was awarded a $98 million verdict as co-lead counsel in a bank fraud case back in December 2017, has landed at the number 22 spot of the National Law Journal and VerdictSearch’s Top 100 Verdicts of 2017.
The case centered around allegations of BBVA Compass’ misrepresentations to Texas real estate developer David Bagwell and his companies about whether the bank intended to sell his real estate loans to a competitor. The bank ended up selling the loans, which were then foreclosed on, causing Mr. Bagwell and his companies to lose out on millions of dollars. You can read more about the verdict here.
VerdictSearch’s Top 100 Verdicts list is made up of the largest jury verdicts from around the country each year. Powers Taylor is honored to be mentioned and ranked number 22 because of the hard work that Peyton Healey put into the case, along with co-lead counsel Derrick Boyd of Boyd Powers & Williamson
