Partners Monte Mann and Andrew Campbell obtained two Appellate Court victories in one week for their real estate client, partial owner of the Pittsfield Building that has been involved in a dispute concerning appointment of a receiver over a portion of the skyscraper that is not owned by their client.

On July 16, 2021, in a unanimous decision, the First District of the Appellate Court of Illinois reversed the trial court and disqualified the receiver on several grounds. Then, on July 23, 2021, in the second victory, the Appellate Court held that the trial court also abused its discretion and reversed the trial court decision denying their client’s motion to compel the receiver to immediately obtain the insurance required under a reciprocal easement agreement.

Ryanne Dent and Eric Singer of Ice Miller and Demetris Kare were co-counsel on both appeals.
