Dismissal of Wrongfully Sued Companies
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.
Schillinger & Finsterwald obtained a reversal in the highest court of the State of New York, seminally declaring the scope of coverage under umbrella insurance policies in New York State.
