    97 Second Avenue and Paulius Skema

    Castellan Holdings, the Manhattan-based real estate investment firm, agreed to settle a lawsuit against its former vice president and allow the sale of an East Village walk-up building to go through, according to a statement released Sunday.

    Castellan had won a temporary restraining order in Manhattan Supreme Court in February, claiming that Paulius Skema negotiated the deal to buy the building at 97 Second Avenue through a firm that he personally controlled — even though he was an executive at Castellan at the time. [more]

(See a few photos from the forum above and look for the December issue for more.) Attorney Adam Leitman Bailey of the eponymous firm and Stuart Saft, chair of the real estate department at Dewey & LeBoeuf, faced off on whether litigation is harming New York City real estate — an animated discussion that had Bailey angling to settle a dispute with Saft from the podium (for a client with cancer) and Saft accusing Bailey of hurting the city with his tactics.
