Denver-based Ballard Spahr Partners Sarah Wallace and Andrew Petrie were included in Law Week Colorado's Top Verdicts of 2017 for their work as the plaintiff's attorneys on the Newcastle Properties, Inc. v. Kinnickinnick Realty Co.

Each company sought damages from the other regarding an agreement the companies supposedly made. While Newcastle Properties alleged that Kinnickinnic breached the management agreement by terminating it improperly, Kinnickinnic claimed there was no such agreement and counterclaimed additional damages.

"Newcastle was thrilled with the verdict because they eventually got everything they asked for," Wallace said. "This was one of those situations where it was a small Colorado company that wanted to be heard by a jury of its peers, and it worked out well for them."
