GLLLP prevails on motion to dismiss — Court finds Lien Law Trust Fund claims valid

On January 11, 2019, New York Supreme Court Justice Charles D. Wood sustained breach of fiduciary duty and Lien Law Trust Fund  claims that GLLLP brought on behalf of LAK3, LLC against the general contractor that LAK3 had hired for a major residential construction project in Westchester County, New York.  Rejecting arguments that the contractor could not, as a matter of law, be held liable for the scheme of defalcations that GLLLP uncovered in a pre-litigation investigation, Justice Wood held that GLLLP's Complaint sufficiently set forth a basis to hold the contractor liable.  The case is entitled LAK3, LLC v. Sean Dunn, et al., Westchester Co. Index No. 61510/2017.

GLLLP has decades of experience in all aspects of construction law, including litigation, counseling, and project documentation.
