Obtained favorable settlement in a contract dispute between client, a paper manufacturer and producer of biomass RECs, and an agent retained by client to market RECs. The agent had pretextually terminated its marketing agreement with the client in an apparent effort to coopt a valuable business opportunity. Kilpatrick Townsend initiated an arbitration petition and also obtained a TRO in state court to prevent the agent from appropriating the opportunity. The agent immediately agreed to a settlement that allowed the client to take advantage of the opportunity with no financial loss.
