Ferrini Wins Appeal on Behalf of Olshan Client Le Parker Meridien Hotel

March 4, 2014

Olshan Real Estate partner Alexander Ferrini, who specializes in Construction Law, recently won a second appeal in a dispute between Le Parker Meridien and its neighbor. The neighbor sought a court order to require that Le Parker Meridien move a sidewalk bridge for work it was conducting on its property, to accommodate the neighbor’s erection of a crane. After Ferrini won at the appellate division, blocking the neighbor’s attempt to forcibly move the sidewalk bridge, the neighbor brought causes of action against Le Parker Meridien for abuse of process, tortious interference with contract and prima facie tort. Ferrini was successful in having those claims dismissed by the trial court, and, on the neighbor’s appeal, the appellate division affirmed Ferrini’s arguments.
