Alter Ego/Piercing the Corporate Veil - Trial Brief


In many trials there are issues that you know are going to come up before the trial even starts. This is one of those issues. My clients were sued and an attempt was made by the plaintiff to convince the court that my individual client (ie the actual person) was one and the same as one or both of the companies that were sued. The purpose of this is to get to deeper pockets or more money. To do this the plaintiff must “pierce the corporate veil’ or punch through the protections that are created by the formation of a corporation. This brief was prepared as a trial brief to give the judge our view on the plaintiff’s veil piercing in this case as well as summarize much of the relevant law on corporate veil piercing.

Please see full trial brief below for more information.
