Congratulations to the chair of our hashtag#complex hashtag#litigation practice leader, Partner Todd Shaw on a resounding and complete win in a complex corporate litigation matter in Supreme Court, Nassau County.

The Plaintiffs sought in excess of $15 million from gartner + bloom PC’s client stemming from the failed development of a hotel in Queens County. The Plaintiffs first brought suit in Supreme Court, New York County.

Partner Todd Shaw successfully had those claims dismissed on a pre-answer motion to dismiss pursuant to both CPLR 3211(a)(1) and (a)(7). Then, with new counsel, Plaintiffs brought another lawsuit against our client, this time in Supreme Court, Nassau County, adding new causes of action and rebranding the facts.

The attempt was a total failure. Not only did Todd successfully have the entire $15 million lawsuit dismissed pursuant to CPLR 3211(a)(5), but the Court agreed with Shaw that Plaintiffs actions were frivolous, awarded sanctions against the Plaintiffs, and directed the Plaintiffs β€œto avoid further forum shopping.” Cheers to you, Todd on an impressive victory.πŸ‘πŸ‘
