CG&P’s Legal Malpractice Defense Group capped off a successful four-week run with another victory: a pre-answer dismissal of all malpractice claims asserted against a Manhattan medical malpractice firm. The victory came on the heels of earlier successes on behalf of a preeminent Manhattan fashion industry attorney, a Nassau County matrimonial attorney, and an Easthampton litigation firm.
CG&P successfully defended a preeminent fashion industry attorney and his Manhattan law firm from malpractice claims brought in the Supreme Court, New York County. CG&P moved to dismiss the action on several grounds, including statute of limitations, lack of standing and lack of causation. Hon. Andrea Masley of the New York County Commercial Division granted the motion based on lack of causation.
CG&P remains committed to assisting our clients throughout the crisis brought on by the COVID-19 virus, even as we take measures to ensure the health and welfare of our attorneys and staff.
