Denlea & Carton’s July 2021 Newsletter

With the summer officially underway, we’re pleased to share with you that 2021 is off to a great start. We’re busy, fully vaccinated, and enjoying the return to normal. We appreciate the support that our friends, families and clients continue to provide us, and will continue to pay it forward every opportunity we have. Here’s a quick recap of some of the highlights of 2021.

Enjoy the summer !
Your Friends and Colleagues at Denlea & Carton.

Welcome David Rubinstein !!

We’re delighted to announce that David Rubinstein has joined our team. David is a graduate of Cornell University and NYU Law School, following which he began his career at several AmLaw100 firms in New York City. David will contribute to all areas of our litigation practice and be a fierce advocate for our clients’ rights. David lives in Bedford with his wife, and two daughters.

Physician Prevails in Shareholder Dispute

Congrats to Jim and Craig who recently helped a physician client complete a contentious separation from the medical practice to which he had made a significant contribution over the past two decades. Jim and Craig secured a full withdrawing shareholder’s distribution for the physician, and helped avert the litigation which the Firm was preparing to file on the physician’s behalf. Well done team!!

Firm Defends Copyright Infringement Claim

There’s been a sharp rise in copyright infringement claims against celebrities who post paparazzi photos to their social media accounts without the license or permission of the photographer. The cases present an interesting study in the friction between a photographer’s right to copyright their artistic work, and a celebrity’s right of publicity in their own image. Against that background, we’ve been privileged to be working with a prominent model management agency as it helps its talent defend against these claims.

Shipowner Reaches Favorable Resolution

A popular riverboat tour in Connecticut recently reached a very favorable out of court settlement with a former employee, who alleged that she had been injured in the course of her employment. The Firm was able to establish significant causation issues between the injuries the former employee alleged she had sustained, and the event which allegedly caused them.

Giving Back to the Community

The Firm is delighted to have made a generous donation to the United Jewish Appeal on behalf of several of its clients. The United Jewish Appeal helps members in our community who are in need or in crisis. Information about the UJA can be found here:

The Firm is also pleased to support the SPCA of Westchester. The SPCA is an independent organization, and does not receive funding from the ASPCA, or any national animal welfare organization, and depends heavily on community donations. Founded in 1883, the SPCA of Westchester is one of the oldest humane societies in the United States. More information about the SPCA can be found here:
