Representative Matters

  • Represented seller/landlord in the sale of a $2 Million commercial property in Seattle.   The transaction also included negotiating with existing tenants on issues such as rights of first refusal and seller's right to sell the property and terminate the lease.
  • Served as second chair in the representation of an LLC member who had been fraudulently induced into signing an LLC Operating Agreement which substantially reduced his interest in the LLC. Nahal and Mark obtained a favorable settlement for the client which provided the client with more funds than the signed Operating Agreement allowed.
  • Defended a home builder in a suit by a materials subcontractor for breach of contract and to foreclose on a mechanic’s lien. Nahal reached a settlement and had the lien removed shortly after the suit was filed with very little cost to the client.
  • Defended client against allegations that he violated a non-compete agreement and other aspects of an employment agreement.  Nahal quickly resolved the issues and obtained a favorable outcome for the client that allowed him to resume work with his new employer without disruption to his employment.
