Avie Glazer and Palm Beach

The owner of one of the world’s most famous soccer clubs is being accused of foul play.

Benitz Building LLC filed a lawsuit in Palm Beach County Circuit Court against Avram “Avie” and Jill Glazer earlier this month. The company said that it was hired to make improvements to the Glazers’ house at 195 Via Marina Avenue in Palm Beach in July 2014 and had substantially completed the project in May 2017.

Benitz alleges that the Glazers owe the company $572,950 for labor and construction costs that it advanced. The West Palm Beach-based real estate company said in the lawsuit it has exhausted all available remedies and is now seeking $572,950 in damages, plus interest.

Avram and Jill Glazer purchased the house at 195 Via Marina Avenue in 2007 for $9.3 million. It has 6,545 square feet with four bedrooms and five baths, according to property records.

A call made to Glazer’s office at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers office was not immediately returned. Calls made to Benitz’s lawyer, Richard Chaves from the West Palm Beach law firm Ciklin Lubitz, were also not immediately returned.

Glazer is part of the family that owns NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is also co-chairman Manchester United, which is regarded as the world’s most valuable professional soccer team, according to Forbes, which estimates its value at $3.7 billion. During Glazer’s tenure at Manchester United, the team has won five Premier League titles.

Prior to owning professional sports teams, Glazer was CEO and chairman of Zapata Corp., an oil company which was founded by President George H. W. Bush.

Glazer is also a member of Mar-a-Lago, President Trump‘s Florida resort and club.
