EVW Partners Stop Respondent From Acting as Own Agent

September 2013 – In a special proceeding pursuant to NY CPLR article 4, partners Alan Van Praag and Edward Floyd successfully obtained a preliminary injunction restraining the respondent from acting as agent under certain New York and Florida powers of attorney during the pendency of the proceeding. The court’s decision, which also denied the respondent’s motion to dismiss, involved recently amended provisions of New York’s General Obligations Law section 5-1510 which were construed in our client’s favor.
