AGW SoNo Partners v. Downtown Soho, LLC

Verrill Dana LLP assisted AGW SoNo Partners before Connecticut Supreme Court regarding COVID rent dispute.

The dispute is regarding a 10-year commercial lease between AGW SoNo Partners and Downtown Soho, LLC for a restaurant and bar in Norwalk.

In a trail earlier this year, AGW SoNo Partners, sued Downtown Soho, LLC, for breach of contract and failure to make payments on their lease between March 2020 and September 2020. The Court award AGW SoNo Partners their seven months of missed lease payments and damages, totaling $200,308.

However, recently Downtown Soho, LLC, appealed the Courts decision arguing once again that Governor Lamont’s pandemic restrictions on restaurants made it virtually impossible for them to meet the requirements of their lease and that they should be freed from having to pay the back rent.

The Court is currently reviewing this matter. 

AGW SoNo Partners, is a real estate manager and investor, owning commercial property in several locations, including Norwalk, Connecticut.
