Rosenthal Law Group recently obtained a judgment at trial for $1,373,560.49 against
Restalia Grupo De Eurorestauracion, S.L., the franchisor for 100 Montaditos,
for breach of guaranty of commercial lease agreement.
The case arose out of a lease of commercial restaurant space on Lincoln
Road in Miami Beach, Florida. Restalia executed an absolute and unconditional
guaranty of the tenant’s lease obligations. After a few years into
the term, the tenant filed bankruptcy and rejected the lease in bankruptcy.
The landlord filed suit against Restalia to enforce the guaranty. Prior
to trial, Rosenthal Law Group successfully prevailed on a Motion for Summary
Judgment as to liability arguing, among other things, that the guaranty
contained a waiver of all liability defenses.
A non-jury trial on damages was conducted before the Honorable Abby Cynamon
on February 26 and 27, 2018. The case was tried by Alex Rosenthal and
