Plaintiff Cases

Ahmed represented a publicly traded corporation in multi-state litigation arising out of a $34 million embezzlement by its former CFO. He helped the company recover $8.5 million from its outside auditors, a major accounting firm, in a suit filed in Illinois, which required obtaining a reversal on appeal. He also helped the client recover $3 million from a credit card provider the CFO used to conduct her embezzlement in a suit filed in Arizona.

$7.5 Million

Ahmed was the lead associate in an environmental and construction delay suit brought on behalf of a beachfront developer suing a major oil company. The toxic contamination discovered on the developer’s property resulted in millions of dollars in cleanup costs and construction delay. The case resulted in a $7.5 million settlement, in which the defendant was forced to pay in excess of the plaintiff’s compensatory damages due in large part to Ahmed’s work in effectively framing the company’s serious punitive damages exposure.
