Interdepartmental Teamwork Overcomes Challenge to Client’s Use Variance Approval

In a client success, shareholder Jennifer Krimko obtained approval for the client to operate a community center and academic tutoring space in Rumson, New Jersey. On the heels of this victory, Litigation Department attorneys Anthony D’Artiglio and Layne Feldman protected that approval following an objecting neighbor’s appeal to the Superior Court. Through an aggressive defense, the approval was upheld, and the objector’s appeal was denied, allowing the clients to continue operating their business serving the local community. Collaboration with the Land Use Department provided nuanced insight into the case and helped secure another victory for the client.

Jennifer co-chairs the Firm’s Land Use Department. She devotes her practice to all areas relating to real estate, representing a wide variety of clients — from individuals to large developers — in all phases of governmental approvals before municipal, county, and state agencies.

Anthony is a partner and litigation team leader in the Firm’s Woodland Park office. His varied practice includes commercial lease disputes, class actions, Consumer Fraud Act claims, corporate/shareholder disputes, employment disputes, secured property actions, and creditors’ rights in bankruptcy matters.

As an associate in the Firm’s Commercial Litigation Department, Layne has a diverse complex commercial and civil litigation practice. She handles commercial lease disputes, Consumer Fraud Act claims, corporate/shareholder disputes, and secured property actions.
