ECBAWM Wins Summary Judgment in Breach of Contract Suit

  • March 9, 2016

ECBAWM lawyers Dan Kornstein and David Lebowitz recently won summary judgment for $195,000 plus interest for ECBAWM’s client Schlesinger & Company, LLC as plaintiff in a suit against WWP Office, LLC. The case, in Supreme Court, New York County, was for breach of a commercial real estate brokerage agreement by which our client was to receive additional commissions if the tenant exercised options to renew its lease. Defendant, which was not the original party to the brokerage agreement, argued it had not assumed the obligations to pay the commission. We submitted proof it had. The parties made cross-motions for summary judgment.  Judge Cynthia Kern granted our motion in full.
