Stephen C. Grebing and Corey C. Garrard successfully defended at trial one of the firm’s commercial real estate brokerage clients against claims of fraud, intentional and negligent misrepresentation in a commercial lease dispute between the landlord/owner and tenant. The tenant sued the owner/landlord and real estate broker claiming that each had falsely represented material facts concerning ownership of the subject property and he tenant’s ability to conduct its business (an escape room) in the leased space. Tenant was seeking $1 million in damages for the failure of its business when it vacated the leased space prematurely. At trial, Mr. Grebing and Mr. Garrard conclusively established that the owner/landlord and the broker had not misrepresented any material facts concerning the lease and the space, and that it was the tenant’s own conduct (failure to obtain permits for Tis) that resulted in the failure of its business. Based upon the same evidence, the owner/landlord prevailed on its cross-claim for unpaid rent against the tenant.
