Soverain Software, LLC v. Day, 2017 IL App (1st) 161913-U, appeal denied sub nom. Soverain Software, LLC v. Jones Day, 98 N.E.3d 58 (Ill. 2018)

Posted on Updated on

This unpublished opinion related to a suit between a former client and a law firm principally centered on past due fees.  The law firm brought a breach of contract claim for $10 million for past due fees and the client counterclaimed for a number of things, including breach of contract and legal malpractice.  The parties arbitrated the dispute and the arbitrator found in favor of the law firm for $1.5 million.  The trial court vacated the arbitration awarded finding that the arbitration panel exceeded its authority and created a compromise award.  The appellate court reversed and affirmed the arbitral award, finding that the award was grounded in the parties’ contract and the trial court improperly imposed its view in place of the arbitral award.
