Lawyer Brian McDonough was nervous when his opposition in a legal case said to him that he shouldn’t feel confident about his client attaining the full amount won. The attorney managed to land his client a million plus dollars in a lawsuit against Sands Brothers & Co. Sands Brothers & Co. is an asset management firm that runs out of Greenwich, Connecticut. McDonough, recalling the event, said that his opposition warned him and encouraged him to go for a significantly reduced settlement offer. The lawyer, however, in the end didn’t take it. His client still managed to get the exact amount that was owed to him as well. It wasn’t without a lot of determination, however. The appeal process delayed the situation for several months. Sands Brothers & Co is a private firm that was established back in 1990. Like the company’s name indicates, it was established by a pair of brothers, Steven and Martin Sands.
