October 27, 2021
In The News
WMH achieved a resounding victory on appeal for its client Chilled Properties, who retained the firm after it was found liable at trial for breach of contract on an alter-ego/veil-piercing theory. On October 27, the NYS Appellate Division vacated and reversed the lower court judgment, holding that it was both procedurally and substantively incorrect. Adopting all of WMH’s arguments, the Court concluded that Chilled had done nothing wrong.
Antonia Batalias, Chilled’s managing member, had this reaction to the decision: “We are so grateful for WMH. They swooped in and saved the day, achieving an amazing result that gives us much-needed peace of mind. We are thrilled with this outcome.”
Chilled was represented by WMH attorneys Jim Walden, Dan Cohen, and Jake Gardener (who argued the appeal).
