Commercial Leasing Dispute


A super-regional shopping mall turned to Larkin Hoffman to defend the mall in connection with claims it misrepresented estimated real estate taxes in its commercial lease. The Larkin Hoffman Real Estate Litigation team of Jim Susag and Gary Van Cleve brought counterclaims against the tenant claiming it was occupying space outside of the leased premises without payment of additional rent. At summary judgment, the court dismissed all claims against the client and granted summary judgment to the client for additional rental payments and late charges.
