Appeals and Deals

I have handled several major appeals but I now work with Charles Kagay, an appellate specialist and the principal of my law firm, Spiegel Liao & Kagay, PC.

Recent deals have included primarily mergers of non profit organizations.

In a commercial matter involving a Bank of America attempted foreclosure, we faced a $13 million swing. My client was pleased at the outcome.

In San Francisco, I long represented the owners of Red’s Java House, a Port icon. This representation involved two sales, one foreclosure under the Uniform Commercial Code, and unification of the fragmented assets of the business, the lease and the liquor license. Deals require keeping one’s eye on the ball throughout the game, as much as, but in a different way than, litigation.

A good deal, like a good mediation, leaves everyone better off. The same cannot be said for litigation.
