Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.s represented a Queens based landlord, who had property in his family for decades. The landlord entered into short term leases with 32 commercial spaces, however the landlord required the spaces to be vacated sooner than he had initially expected or governmental funding deadlines would expire. If the premises were not vacated by a certain deadline, the landlord would be forced to give up his plans for redeveloping the complex.
By drafting papers within 24 hours after receiving information, the attorneys at Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. swept in just in time to allow the landlord to vacate his buildings and meet his tight deadline. Initially, they sent out a Termination Notice to each tenant. As is common, the tenant attempted to exhort large settlements by threatening to litigate. To end this threat, and taking advantage of an aggressive judge who refused to tolerate this typical delay tactic, the attorneys at Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. forced all the cases to trial. Of course, faced with certain defeat, the tenants decided to accept deals. The ones who refused, were subject to large money judgments for their recalcitrance.
Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. carefully negotiated with each of the commercial tenants and avoided having to given buyouts. As a result, the client was able to have his buildings vacated in time for his deadline and secure the redevelopment of the building campus.
Christopher Halligan represented the client in court, while Dov Treiman and Jamie Schare Friedland drafted the papers.
