Fried Frank represented Alfonso Wright, owner of Brooklyn Tea, in the successful negotiation of his first physical location in Brooklyn, New York. Mr. Wright launched his business in late 2017, achieving success primarily through e-commerce, festivals, and pop-ups. Brooklyn Tea sells organic teas online and from its new tearoom cafe which held a grand opening celebration earlier this month. The matter was referred to Fried Frank by Volunteers of Legal Service which recruits lawyers from New York City's leading law firms to provide pro bono legal assistance to low-income New Yorkers.
