In a recent case, Greg represented owners of a warehouse in the South of Market Area of San Francisco and prosecuted claims that the tenant illegally subleased to a marijuana grow operation. A careful pre-filing ingestion was undertaken and evidence was marshaled showing the commercial real estate broker involved in the lease and management of the property was responsible for the losses. The case resulted in a six-figure settlement that made the client whole.
In another case, Leyla represented a restauranteur against a property owner who defrauded her. Specifically, the property owner represented that a permit was likely to be issued for a restaurant. Leyla pressed for evidence in the case and ultimately proved to a panel of jurors that the property owner lied. The jury awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to Leyla's client, and attorney's fees, and punitive damages. The case was appealed the judgment was affirmed on appeal.
