  • Obtained an injunction for an advertising client that prevented the removal of a prominent billboard for the Broadway show “Wicked” on the Westside Highway leading into Manhattan. The landlord and billboard company tried to remove the sign before the  lease expired, claiming it violated the applicable zoning provisions for large signs on top of buildings and may cause them to incur fines. Convinced the judge that taking down the sign in October, just prior to the start of the highest-earning holiday season, would suggest the show was closing.
  • Won a JAMS arbitration for a client that sold a scaffolding business to buyers who later claimed they were disappointed with their $5.5 million purchase. The buyer made the initial down payment, several installment payments and then stopped payments altogether. The arbitrator awarded the client approximately $1.5 million in damages, plus attorneys’ fees and costs.
