26 Mar Kelly | Dorsey Attorneys Obtain Favorable Judgment In Commercial Lease Dispute Including Prevailing Party Attorneys’ Fees In Excess Of $258,000.
After a five-day bench trial, Attorneys Gregory Dorsey, Shaun Bokhari, and Robert Greenberg persuaded a judge of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City to award relief to a technology services company that includes a declaration and order that its commercial landlord must complete construction of the company’s commercial lease space in a Class A office building in downtown Baltimore despite the landlord’s defense.. The Kelly|Dorsey attorneys also persuaded the court to dismiss the landlord’s countersuit seeking to terminate the lease and damages. The landlord was represented by a top 50 AmLaw 200 law firm.
In further awarding Kelly|Dorsey’s client prevailing party attorneys’ fees in excess of $258,000, after an additional full day post-trial hearing, the judge issued a written Statement of Reasons noting:
“As the parties to this matter are well aware, the underlying case stemmed from a longstanding dispute between [firm client] and the [landlord]. There were a number of complaints filed and dismissed beginning in 2015 with the current above-captioned lawsuit being filed in January of 2019. Counsel for all parties were vigorous in the representation of their clients.”
