Greetings from TRR!
The summer has come to a close, and we enter the fall with many exciting announcements to share with you.
Earlier this year, we launched the new website for our firm at www.tesserryan.com. We will have updated information about what’s happening with the firm, as well as new blog posts on the site in the coming months, so stay tuned! We also maintain a second blog, writing on legal matters, and other interesting and articles at www.newyorkbusinesslawyers.net

TRR Paralegal Omar Evans recently appeared in HBO’s The Night Of, specifically in the second episode. Prior to that, he performed in the world premiere of Downrange: Voices from the Homefront at Cape Fear Regional Theater and the world premiere of the critically acclaimed play The Project(s) at American Theater Company in Chicago. He is currently working on his directorial debut of The Situation, a short film.
- TRR successfully obtained the dismissal of a major federal lawsuit which alleged, among many other claims, the theft of a competitor’s property and customers and improper solicitation of employees and customers. The dismissal followed multiple years of hotly contested litigation in state and federal courts between the parties. The federal case sought damages for violating the civil RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) statute.
- TRR also recently obtained the dismissal of a fraud suit against a client commenced by a former employer. The action was dismissed after a motion to dismiss was filed by the firm with the state Supreme Court. The case was closely tied to a high-profile New York City political corruption criminal trial which resulted in the convictions of other parties.
- TRR represented the owners of a regional moving and storage company in the sale of the business. The transaction, which took many months to conclude, involved many intricate issues including structuring the sale and working with the buyer on the financing of the purchase, federal and state taxation and licensure issues, reaching agreement with existing employees, and a consulting arrangement to allow for the orderly transition of the business from seller to buyer.
