Cases: Individual Actions

Vulture Loan Scheme

Reese Richman LLP represented a small business owner against Silver Point Capital Partnership LLP, a hedge fund management firm, for actions based on fraud, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and tortious interference with prospective economic relations. Silver Point had purchased a business owner’s debt and, despite making promises that it would act as a partner with the business owner, acted as a vulture loan company, engaging in an undisclosed “loan to own” scheme that forced the client out of his company and into Silver Point’s sole possession.

Horse Partnership

Reese Richman LLP represented a horse trainer and small business owner in an action for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and tortious interference with prospective economic relations. The client had entered into a partnership for buying, selling, and training prize-winning horses. Her partner, the defendant, began secretly diverting clients to a new company run by the defendant and her father. Through arbitration, Reese Richman LLP was able to obtain a significant judgment for the plaintiff.

Police Abuse

Reese Richman LLP has represented many clients in actions against the City of New York and various NYPD police officers under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 for compensatory and punitive damages. The clients have been victims of unprovoked police brutality and false charges. Reese Richman LLP has successfully settled most of these matters.
