    Some recent Representative Commercial Litigation Matters

    • I successfully defended a Manhattan nightclub that was sued in a Federal Court Civil rights Action stemming from a patron being ejected.  After extensive discovery and depositions, the Plaintiff discontinued the case with no damages paid my client.
    • Client had purchased a restaurant-delicatessen based upon misrepresentations of the seller. It was alleged that the business generated more income than it actually did and that the client list was inflated. Action was brought on behalf of client for rescission of the contract, and for damages based upon fraud and misrepresentation. After extensive discovery, depositions and a five day Supreme Court Trial, I secured a money judgment in excess of $100,000 for my Client.
    • My Client and his partner in a Williamsburg nightclub could not agree on the management and allocation of profits. I filed for a Judicial Dissolution in Supreme Court and after discovery and motion practice, my Client received a very generous buy-out offer.
    • My Client, a chain of restaurants, incurred $100,000 in Dept. of Building fines due to the negligence of one of its contractors. I represented them before the NYC Environmental Control Board (ECB) and negotiated with the City to reduce the total fines to $40,000.
    • I represented a major Midtown Manhattan nightclub when they were closed by the NYPD in a nuisance abatement action. I successfully negotiated with the City to get them re-open within days with a de minimis fine.
