In some of our recent cases, we—

  • Successfully resolved a large-scale claim brought by our client alleging that a subcontractor provided defective components and, as a result, breached its contractual obligations to the firm's client.
  • In a dispute between two law firms involving allegations that one law firm pilfered the attorneys of another, successfully obtained summary judgment on behalf of client law firm.  The Court held that the non-solicitation agreement entered into by the parties was unenforceable under New York law as it was against public policy.
  • Obtained summary judgment in client’s favor on a claim arising from the breach of a commercial lease agreement.
  • In litigation arising from a physician’s departure from a medical practice, including various breach of contract claims involving a limited liability company agreement, successfully defended an appeal involving various discovery and privilege issues that had been resolved in favor of client, where the opposing party had waived the attorney-client privilege.
  • On appeal, obtained a reversal of partial summary judgment granted against our client, advancing the client’s position that contractual provisions requiring directors of a corporation to select and maintain certain individuals as corporate officers were void under New York’s Business Corporation Law.
  • In litigation involving claims brought on behalf of a corporate plaintiff pursuant to the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act or "RICO," successfully defended against a motion to dismiss brought by one defendant, and also successfully defended against a motion to quash subpoenas seeking personal bank records of individual defendants.
