Paul J. Winterhalter of Offit Kurman, P.A. in Philadelphia obtained a favorable ruling on appeal from the Pennsylvania Superior Court on behalf of the Firm’s clients, Frankford Machinery, Inc., Ronald Kashkashian and Nicholas Kashkashian.  The clients were originally each named as defendants on a fraudulent transfer lawsuit instituted in the Court of Common Pleas of Delaware County, Pennsylvania.  Mr. Winterhalter successfully defended the clients gaining a ruling in their favor following a non-jury trial before the Honorable G. Michael Green in Delaware County on April 14, 2016.  The Plaintiff appealed the trial court ruling to the Pennsylvania Appellate Court.  The Appellate Court ruled in its September 26, 2017 decision that the determinations of the trial court judge was well supported by the evidence as presented at trial.  In a factually sensitive proceeding, the Firm successfully established that the Plaintiff failed to present evidence that assets were transferred as alleged. Brookworth Partners, L.P. v. Frankford Machinery, Inc., Nicholas Kashkashian, Jr. and Ronald Kashkashian, Superior Court of Pennsylvania, No. 2967 EDA 2016, filed September 26, 2017
