Edmond M. Connor is Managing Partner of CONNOR, FLETCHER & HEDENKAMP LLP. For the last 40 years, Mr. Connor’s practice has been focused on complex business and real estate litigation for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to individuals.

Prosecution of fraud claims on behalf of subsidiaries of a large California-based utility company over the failed sale of a $1.2 billion liquefied natural gas power plant located in Puerto Rico. Mr. Connor obtained a multi-million dollar settlement in favor of his clients;
