Associate Robert Fanning succeeded in securing a dismissal for the Firm’s client, Tudor Insurance Company, in a lawsuit brought by a building owner against a contractor and the contractor’s insurer (Tudor).  Robert drafted and argued the motion in Supreme Court, New York County, before Justice Shlomo Hagler, who summarily dismissed the claim from the bench.

Proper analysis of the insurance law was the key to this successful result, but the strategic decision to make this motion early was the key to the client avoiding significant legal fees exposure.

The case is  Skibar v. 338 West 15th Street, LLC, Index No. 157241/2018.
