Brett Kutnick served as appellate counsel for a team of trial lawyers in defending Triad Electric and Controls, Inc. in a lawsuit filed by MEMC Pasadena, Inc. seeking over $25 million in lost profits and property damages allegedly sustained by MEMC's polysilicon manufacturing facility during the construction of an expansion project. After a multi-week jury trial, the 151st Judicial District Court of Harris County, Texas in Houston rendered a take-nothing judgment in Triad's favor. Mr. Kutnick was responsible for the jury charge, many of the significant legal and evidentiary issues that arose during the course of the trial, and all post-verdict motions. The case is currently being appealed by MEMC in the Court of Appeals for the Fourteenth District of Texas in Houston. MEMC Pasadena, Inc. v. Riddle Power, LLC and Triad Electric and Controls, Inc., No. 2008-11010, 151st Judicial District Court of Harris County, Texas.

Brett Kutnick successfully represented Alliance Royalties, LLC and Alliance Royalties, Inc., in an interlocutory appeal challenging a temporary injunction that enjoined them from terminating a Management Agreement with Compass Royalty Management, LLC. After Brett Kutnick presented oral argument, the Court of Appeals for the Fifth District of Texas in Dallas held that the trial court abused its discretion in granting the injunction because the injunction effectively rewrote a contract that was terminable at will and imposed a contractual relationship upon the parties that was contrary to the specific contractual provisions regarding termination. The court therefore reversed the trial court's injunction order and remanded the case to the trial court for further proceedings. Alliance Royalties, LLC v. Boothe, 313 S.W.3d 493 (Tex. App.-Dallas 2010, no pet.).
