Verdicts & Settlements

Landlord’s Refusal to Consent to the Assignment of a Tenant’s Lease – A tenant in a building sought to sell its business and the tenant requested that the landlord consent to the assignment of the lease to the proposed purchaser of the business. The landlord refused, claiming that the proposed purchaser would not be able to perform its obligations under the lease. Following a bench trial, the court ruled in our favor and ordered the landlord to consent to the lease assignment. The trial court denied our request for attorney’s fees and court costs, but we appealed and the appellate court reversed that ruling and ordered the landlord to pay our fees and costs.
