Gabe Bluestone focuses his practice on commercial litigation, asset recovery and judgment enforcement, as well as resolving related business and real estate disputes.
Gabe regularly litigates all phases of commercial disputes in federal and state courts throughout the country, and frequently represents clients before a variety of arbitral bodies around the world.
Clients call on Gabe to litigate complicated issues, master difficult facts, and pursue all available avenues to succeed, often involving sensitive contractual and business issues. These disputes often encompass multiple jurisdictions and several potential parties and claims, presenting potentially complex questions.
Recent litigation successes include a favorable eve-of-trial settlement in the prosecution of a guarantor who defaulted on a $50 million real estate-related credit line and embarked on a sophisticated effort to continue operations via newly created entities. Gabe led the team exposing the scheme, seized accounts, and brought suit against a successor business, participating investors, and various co-conspirators. Gabe also represented a leading mid-Atlantic property owner with a judgment against a former retail tenant anchoring a large shopping center, and successfully won a summary judgment motion voiding over $1.1 million in fraudulent transfers made by the former tenant to its insider affiliate supplier.
In addition to being an executive editor of the New York State Bar Association’s International Law Practicum, Gabe has published and been quoted in a variety of media outlets for business related legal issues, including: Asset Recovery Magazine, Huffington Post Live, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, The Hill, and American Bar Association and NACM newsletters.
