REPRESENTATIVE MATTERS

  • David successfully represented a prominent commercial real estate holder in multi-million-dollar actions to enforce the lease payment obligations of various big-box national retailers.
  • David and his team replaced an AmLaw 100 firm three weeks before trial and successfully defended a multi-billion-dollar private equity firm against claims for fraudulent transfer in a $66 million action brought in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The matter settled on the courthouse steps for a mere fraction of the alleged damages and on terms that were extremely favorable to the client.
