A nonprofit organization dedicated to developing affordable housing in Minnesota is defending against claims of breach of contract, foreclosure of a mechanics lien, unjust enrichment, misrepresentation and tortious interference brought by a construction company. Our firm is representing the nonprofit in the lawsuit.

The construction company alleged that it is entitled to over $900,000 in fees for assistance it alleges to have provided in the preconstruction development of the project.
