Our client brought claims for enforcement of a partnership agreement against the estate of his deceased business partner.
When our client lawfully canceled a contract to sell an apartment building, the buyer filed a notice of pendency.
Schillinger & Finsterwald represented one divorced spouse against the other divorced spouse in a claim for sole ownership of a Fifth Avenue cooperative apartment which they had purchased together many years prior.
After trial and appeal, we obtained judgment declaring that our client is sole owner of a Long Island shopping center and six New York City apartment buildings. In this case, we succeeded by proving that the adversary party had committed multiple acts of fraud and forgery.
