Schieber and Gise Win Significant Victory on Summary Judgment

October 22, 2019 | Real Estate, Zoning & Land Use | Commercial Litigation

Evan Schieber and David Gise obtained summary judgment dismissing a complaint in a dispute over a million dollar real estate brokerage commission.

The New York County Supreme Court dismissed in its entirety an action commenced by Cushman & Wakefield (“Cushman”) against our client Olivet University seeking a commission for its role in connection with Olivet’s purchase of several parcels that comprise its college campus.   Cushman argued that it was entitled to a commission under an agreement between the parties.   However, the Court agreed with Rivkin Radler that the commission agreement relating to the particular parcel of land was terminated prior to the sale and that Cushman could not demonstrate that it was the procuring cause.
