    • Represented a corporate defendant who got sued for allegedly breaching a contract in connection with the sale of commercial property nearing 2 million in value.  After deposing the attorney who represented the buyer, we obtained complete dismissal of all claims by arguing that the contract in question was illegal, and therefore, unenforceable.  We also argued that the buyer elected to terminate the contract, and therefore, the contract no longer exists and therefore it cannot be breached.  Plaintiff' counsel voluntarily dismissed all claims after the deposition.  , 2020
    • Represented a client who was wrongfully terminated for being injured.  She was an hourly employee over 70 years old that worked in the kitchen for a year.  Defendant took no-pay position.  We kept pushing the case through discovery without giving up on the claim.  Then on the day of trial, the Defendant settled for an amount that is favorable to the client.   , 2020
    • Represented a commercial tenant who had a lease agreement where the landlord was supposed to be responsible for the noise emanating from another tenant in the building.  This matter was arbitrated by Retired Judge, James Rothschild.  In the course of arbitration, we obtained a decision that is worth close to $200,000 in monetary damages, including counsel fees.  In issuing the arbitration decision dated January 17 2020, the arbitrator, referring to Joshua Lim, wrote, "my experience as a lawyer, Judge, mediator and arbitrator, has not uncovered another case where a tenant achieved so much".  , 2020
    • Represented an employee who was terminated after six months.  Obtained a favorable settlement against a global company which initially refused to pay much, after filing a complaint.  Entered into a confidential agreement in August 2020.  , 2020
