The firm would like to recognize MacElree Harvey attorney Bob Burke and his recent appearance before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
The argument related to a matter of first impression as Pennsylvania’s highest court considers a significant change in Pennsylvania law that will impact the ability of owners of legal entities to protect their assets from judgments unrelated to the operation of their businesses.
For the first time, the Court is considering adopting the Single Entity Theory that would enable plaintiffs to pierce the corporate veil of a related corporate entity for the actions of a “sister” entity that shares common owners. Bob argued that the Supreme Court should reject this novel theory, affirm the holdings of the lower courts and not eliminate the most basic protection afforded owners of businesses.
