Representative Matters

  • Represented a Fortune 500 energy company, convincing the Eastern District of New York to reconsider a prior decision and grant summary judgment on a breach of contract claim against a competing energy company. The parties entered into an agreement whereby Defendant was obligated to have the capacity to receive, store, and transfer lubricant base oils; despite repeatedly acknowledging that it could accept a particular base oil, Defendant refused to do so unless the client entered into unrelated agreements. Defendant then claimed the need to substantially modify its facility to accept the product. The court initially denied summary judgment finding the facility modification a material issue of fact; on a motion for reconsideration, the Court reversed its decision finding it had overlooked a provision obligating Defendant to make any modifications necessary to enable storage. The case will proceed to trial to determine damages.
