Some recent Representative Commercial Litigation Matters
- I defended a Manhattan nightclub sued in a Federal Court Civil Rights Action stemming from a patron being ejected. After lengthy discovery and depositions, Plaintiff discontinued the case with no damages paid to my client. The client had purchased a restaurant-delicatessen based upon misrepresentations of the seller. Unfortunately, the seller alleged the business generated more income than it did by inflating its client list. The action was brought on behalf of the client for the rescission of the contract and damages based upon fraud and misrepresentation. After extensive discovery, depositions, and a five-day Supreme Court Trial, I secured my client’s money judgment of over $100,000.
- My client and his partner in a Williamsburg nightclub could not agree on managing and allocating 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, was fined $100,000 by the Dept. of Building fines because of a contractor’s mistake. Subsequently, I represented the client before the NYC Environmental Control Board (ECB) and got the City to reduce the fines to $40,000.
- I represented a major Midtown Manhattan nightclub closed by the NYPD in a nuisance abatement action. I successfully negotiated with the City to re-open them within days with a de minimis fine.
