Summary Judgment Granted in Commercial Leasing Dispute over Unauthorized Amendments

Successfully argued for summary judgment on behalf of a real estate development and management firm in litigation over unauthorized and counterfeit amendments made to a lease by a commercial tenant in a Gramercy Park area property recently acquired by the client.   In its ruling, which granted our motion in its entirety, the New York County Supreme Court ordered the defendants to vacate the premises and scheduled an inquest to determine money damages on our claims for back rent and holdover use.
