Examples of Cases Mr. Lipstein has Taken to Trial:
Construction Delay Suit

Mr. Lipstein persuaded the court that the delays had been caused by the general contractor and not the client. The client was awarded the balance of the contract price which the general contractor had refused to pay.

Property Ownership Dispute
Mr. Lipstein's clients operated a small business at a leased location and wished to purchase real estate from the owners. The owners were willing to sell, but only at a very high price. Mr. Lipstein obtained a court order that his clients could purchase the property at a price that was very favorable to them. The effort saved hundreds of thousands.
Mr. Lipstein represented a hospital executive who was fired without receiving the severance pay provided by his contract. Mr. Lipstein won the full amount of his severance pay in private arbitration. The hospital paid quickly.
