Most recently, Mr. Glantz was successful in vacating an arbitration award issued by the National Arbitration and Mediation against a high net worth individual in favor of a large and notable real estate agency and made the news representing several entertainers and artists such as Carlos Suarez p/k/a “Spiff TV” in a matter involving Meek Mill, Rick Ross and Maybach Music Group.
Throughout his career, Mr. Glantz has also strived to help fundraise on behalf of various charities such as the TLC Foundation, a major supporter of SCOPE – Summer Camp Opportunities Provide an Edge, two nonprofit organizations with similar missions of promoting the health, education, welfare and betterment of children by giving them the edge to succeed in life through the summer camp experiences.
