DEFENSE-SIDE RESULTS*

The following are some of the victories obtained for our clients. While past results do not guarantee future results, the following examples do represent outcomes achieved for clients of this law firm:

We were retained by a shopping mall that had been sued on multiple prior occasions for violation of the ADA, and had taken remedial steps to comply with the law. We took the case to trial, resulting in a directed verdict for our client.

We were retained by a national car wash chain to defend against ADA claims. After pressing the plaintiff to prove the existence of his disability, the plaintiff agreed to dismiss all claims and to pay all attorney’s fees incurred by our client.

We were retained by a major fast food chain to defend against ADA claims at one of its restaurant locations. We established conclusively that no ADA violations were present at the subject property and obtained dismissal with prejudice.

We were retained by an advertising agency to defend against various claims, including allegation of federal securities fraud. At the motion to dismiss stage, we demonstrated that there was no way for the plaintiff to prevail on claims, and the entire case was dismissed.

We were retained to defend against a claim filed by a condominium resident alleging interference with fair housing rights. We obtained a complete defense victory on behalf of our client, with the court finding no interference with any fair housing rights.

We were retained by a large fast food chain to defend against claims of discrimination brought by a restaurant employee. We obtained a complete defense victory on behalf of both the restaurant franchisor as well as its franchisee.

We were retained by a well-known New York City entertainment venue to defend it against claims of sex and race based discrimination. After several month of litigation, we obtained dismissal of all claims with prejudice.

We were retained by a foreign company to defend it against copyright infringement charges filed against it in a state where it did not do any business. After demonstrating the lack of connection between our client and the forum state, the court dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.

We were retained to represent an office of doctors against claims that their corporate website infringed on copyrights held by a third party. We obtained a dismissal with prejudice of all claims and recovered all attorney’s fees and costs expended by our client in defense of its case.

We were retained by a taxi company to defend against discrimination claims brought by a former driver. We established that the driver did not have the legal status of employee, and that legitimate reasons existed for the actions taken against him. The court sided with our client resulting in a complete defense victory.

We were retained by a food products importer to defend trademark infringement claims brought against it by a major competitor. By citing to a little-known and rarely used section of the trademark examiner’s handbook, we successfully argued that the competitor’s mark was unenforceable, resulting in dismissal of all federal infringement claims.
