GEABP Succeeds In Obtaining Dismissal of Case on Appeal

In response to an appeal filed by GEABP, the Appellate Division, First Department, of the New York Supreme Court granted summary judgment in favor of our client, a real estate developer, and dismissed a case seeking more than $65 million in damages.  The case was brought by our client’s former attorney who claimed to have been given a percentage share in all revenues from a certain real estate project as compensation for his work, in addition to hourly fees.   After years of heavily contested litigation – involving many unusual issues of contract law, questions of attorney ethics, and more — our client succeeded in defeating the claims in their entirety.  The defense was led by David Eiseman and Jacqueline Veit.
