Tom Mealiffe represents companies in a wide variety of commercial disputes throughout the country. He works with companies in a variety of industries, in particular healthcare, real estate, and fintech, and has obtained both plaintiff and defense verdicts as trial counsel in both federal and state courts.
I focus on commercial real estate disputes concerning all aspects of real estate, including financing, partnership disputes, complex commercial tenancy disputes, leasing, and real estate valuation matters (ground lease and space lease rent re-sets in particular). I have tried numerous ground rent re-set arbitrations involving hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of both commercial landlords and tenants.
Much of my work involves disputes concerning companies that operate in a variety of markets, including healthcare, fintech, and blockchain technologies. I have represented clients in a broad array of matters, including shareholder disputes and False Claims Act cases involving Medicare and Medicaid billing.
I have worked with several large manufacturers, particularly in the aviation industry, in defending their products against claims of negligence and manufacturing and design defect. I have also worked with manufacturers on regulatory matters, particularly involving the Consumer Product Safety Commission, guiding them through reporting of incidents and product recalls.
Blockchain technology and digital assets are revolutionizing a variety of industries. I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with those companies developing these innovations as they grow and navigate the current legal landscape.
