Jacob Amir obtained dismissal of a complaint brought by a commercial property owner against our client, the principal of a construction company, regarding the principal’s certification on payment requisitions totaling about $700,000 under a $7.5 million construction management contract.

The owner alleged that our client engaged in fraud and misrepresentation when he certified the accuracy of payment requisitions which the owner claimed were false due to non-performance and non-payments to subcontractors. The Court adopted Jacob’s arguments that the principal could not be held personally liable for the claims alleged, and granted dismissal of the entire complaint.
