Denlea & Carton LLP is pleased to announce that it has been named the Litigation Firm of the Year in New York by Global Law Experts (GLE). This distinction was bestowed as part of the 2020 Global Law Experts Annual Awards, which GLE implemented in 2010 to celebrate excellence, innovation, and performance across legal communities around the world. The firm and its Litigation practice received this honor in recognition of its leadership in the litigation arena. Recipients of GLE’s annual accolades are selected through a rigorous nomination and research process, through which select firms are deemed to excel within their specialty areas. Firm nominations are provided by in-house counsel, independent firms, business directors, and bar associations, among others. Nominees are then judged on a variety of services, including client testimonials, case studies, legal ranking and performance. We’re delighted to be recognized with this honor!

Denlea & Carton recently obtained a multi-million dollar verdict on behalf of an individual investor in an arbitration held before the American Arbitration Association.  The dispute, which arose from a false promise by a hedge fund principal to secure a seven-figure loan with a commercial mortgage, included claims for breach of contract against the fund, and for fraud individually against the fund’s principal.  After a multi-day hearing and lengthy briefing, the firm prevailed on all claims.

Happy New Year ! As a new decade begins, it’s time to set new goals and reflect back on last year. For us, 2019 was a year of tremendous growth and rewarding success – preparing us for new and exciting challenges ahead. We’re thrilled to have been chosen again as one of US News & World Report’s Best Law Firms for 2020, and look forward to the privilege of serving you in the coming year and beyond. Here’s to an exciting and prosperous year ahead !!
