  • Going Through a Divorce; Update Your Documents

    If you have or will soon have an ex‑spouse, believe it or not, he or she may still have power over your medical and financial affairs after your divorce. This would send shockwaves through most people knowing that their ex‑spouse may still have any control over them after they part company.  This is why it is important to update your beneficiary designations and other estate planning documents to prevent your soon‑to‑be ex‑spouse from inheriting money or remaining in positions of authority. I know that wills, trusts, retirement plans, healthcare directives, etc. are typically the last thing on your mind if you are ...

Morstan Gen. Agency, Inc. (J. Whelan), attempted to ...

  • Court of Appeals Enforces Rent Acceleration Clause in Commercial Lease

    Commercial landlord/tenant matters do not often reach the Court of Appeals. However, in December 2014, the Court of Appeals issued a decision addressing the enforceability of a rent acceleration clause in a commercial lease where the landlord obtained possession of the demised premises after tenant defaulted in paying rent and abandoned the premises.  Landlord/tenant practitioners should be aware of this significant decision.

  • All Solar Power is Not Created Equal (So Slow Down PSEG-LI and LIPA and Get It Right)

    I am a firm advocate for more solar power. The benefits are indisputable and can be read about elsewhere. New York has the potential to produce 11 times as much electricity from solar power as the state consumes each year. (“Star Power: The Growing Role of Solar Energy in New York”, Environment New York Research & Policy Center at 4 ). In little more than five years, improvements in battery storage may well enable the excess electricity from solar to be stored for use when electricity is not being generated by solar systems, at night and during cloudy or ...
