Jacob Amir Prevails at Trial and Appeal in Action to Set Aside Fraudulent Deed

Jacob Amir obtained a favorable decision in the Appellate Division, Second Department, which affirmed a decision after trial in the Westchester County Supreme Court. The trial Court decision granted judgment to Z&S’s clients, who are shareholders of a corporation seeking to restore its ownership interest in a large developable residential parcel. After substituting into the action for another attorney, Jacob used extensive pre-trial discovery to recreate a thirty year history of ownership and use of the property. At trial, the Westchester County Supreme Court granted judgment setting aside a fraudulent deed, and restoring title to the corporation.
