Connecticut Realtor Receives Commission Earned
The firm successfully concluded a long and, unfortunately, drawn out litigation in Ulster County on behalf of Connecticut realtor for his commission on the sale of an automotive franchise dealership. The defendant, a Delaware attorney, resisted every step of the way raising issues over sufficiency of process and jurisdiction, to the amount of the commission due, forcing the parties to a bench trial. The Decision recently rendered by the Court confirmed the firm's clients position and awarded close to $200,000.00 in commission. Critical issues in the case involved expert testimony concerning the usual and customary rate of commission on similar transactions. From utilizing the services of a nationally recognized expert specializing in the purchase and sale of automotive dealerships in order to establish the case.
