- Plaintiff v. Commercial Real Estate Brokerage – Secured a defense verdict and award of costs in favor of a commercial real estate brokerage accused of professional negligence and breach of fiduciary duties. Plaintiff alleged a commercial real estate transaction involving the purchase of country club and complicated liquor license was thwarted when escrow instructions were not properly completed. Due to thorough cross examination of witnesses and expert testimony, the judge entered judgment in favor of our client immediately after closing arguments and without taking the matter under submission.
- Plaintiffs v. Real Estate Agency and Listing Agent – Obtained summary judgment on behalf of a well-known commercial real estate agency and listing agent in a complex real estate investment case alleging intentional misrepresentation. Plaintiffs alleged they were misled when they purchased 4.5 acres of land with two large structures and found out the property lacked certain permits which allegedly made it not suitable for their investment needs. The court ultimately held that our clients properly administered their professional duties and there was no evidence of misrepresentation.
