Michael J. Nuñez Takes the Helm as Partner in Charge of Las Vegas Office

November 1, 2007

Friedrich W. Seitz, Managing Partner, is pleased to announce that Michael J. Nuñez has been elevated to Partner, and has assumed the duties of Partner In Charge of the firm's Las Vegas office.

Mr. Nuñez, who joined the firm as an Associate on November 15, 1999, was sworn in as a member of the Nevada State Bar on November 2, 2007 and assumed his responsibilities at the Las Vegas office on November 5, 2007. Mr. Nuñez has extensive experience in all phases of litigation, mediation, arbitration involving product liability, professional liability, employment, construction defect and general liability. He has tried cases to verdict and has significant experience in handling appeals.

Since the opening of our Las Vegas office in June of 2000, this office has seen its share of interesting cases reflecting the development of the law and growth of the legal community in Las Vegas. In one unique case, which went to trial in 2007, three bouncers and a bartender, along with the management of the world-famous Cheetah's Lounge topless bar, were sued by two unruly and unhappy customers who claimed they were roughed-up, injured and had their rights violated when they were forcibly ejected from the club around 5 AM. After a two-week trial, the jury absolved the management and the bartender from all liability, but held the bouncers liable for only very modest damages.
