Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s clients invested their life’s savings to become partners in an established furniture business. When it became apparent that the owner of the business was dealing in counterfeit merchandise, was self-dealing and “cooking the books,” they withdrew. The owner refused to return their money. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. sued and the owner countersued for money he said the clients owed him under their contract. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s clients had made substantial payments in cash and the owner alleged that his books and records had been destroyed in a fire, so there were considerable evidence problems in proving our case. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. won a unanimous verdict following a Kings County jury trial and the clients were awarded a money judgment for their damages, In the end, the case was settled to the satisfaction of our client.
Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. was represented at the trial and subsequent settlement by Colin Kaufman.
