About this Event
Gregory J. Spaun is an accomplished Partner at Welby, Brady & Greenblatt, LLP, concentrating his practice in construction and commercial litigation, as well as real estate and property litigation. He has an impressive record of representing clients in high-stakes cases, including North Star Construction Corp. v MTA Capital Construction Corp., where he successfully argued on appeal that a negligent misrepresentation claim against an owner/designer should not be dismissed because of credible allegations of a relationship that was the functional equivalent of privity sufficient to get around the lack of an actual contractual relationship. Mr. Spaun also achieved a significant victory in 110 Central Park South Corp. v 112 Central Park South, LLC, where he demonstrated that the common law implied housing warranty was superseded by Section 777 of New York's General Business Law, thereby preventing a cooperative building owner from asserting such a claim. Additionally, in Kamco Supply Corp. v JMT Brothers Realty, LLC, he prevailed on appeal in a case involving an unlicensed home improvement contractor's material supplier, highlighting the importance of verifying the licensure status of upstream contractors to preserve the ability to assert claims such as mechanic's lien claims. Mr. Spaun's expertise has also earned him the role of General Counsel to the Queens and Bronx Building Association, in addition to his work at WB&G.
