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 Amanda Jones.
