NEW YORK, July 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Mr Vladislav Doronin, the successful international real estate developer and owner, filed a lawsuit on 16th July 2014 in New York against Mr Omar Amanat and Peak Venture Partners LLC claiming fraudulent conduct in connection with the acquisition of the Aman Group Ltd., the luxury resort company that owns and operates properties throughout the world. The recent acquisition of the Aman Group was funded primarily by Mr Doronin.
The complaint alleges that Mr Amanat secretly used Mr Doronin's money to pay millions of dollars of Mr Amanat's own obligations and, in order to induce Mr Doronin to enter into the transaction, submitted written confirmations that Mr Amanat had more than $100 million in liquid assets on the letterhead of a brokerage firm that Mr Doronin later learned was in receivership and was not holding any client monies whatsoever.
Mr Doronin also alleges in the complaint that Mr Amanat's alleged conduct is part of a pattern going back decades with other businesses and partners. As a result of the claims of Mr Omar Amanat's alleged wrongful conduct, Mr. Doronin seeks monetary damages and an order compelling Mr Amanat to sell his interests in the Aman Group to Mr Doronin.
Following the filing of the complaint, Mr Doronin stated: "My primary concern is to continue rebuilding the Aman Group - expanding and making it more successful than it has ever been. As part of that effort, I look forward to having Mr Omar Amanat's conduct remedied by the courts, so that the Aman Group can focus completely on its resorts and guests without further distraction."
Mr Doronin is represented in the lawsuit by Marc Kasowitz, Paul O'Connor and James Stricker of Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman LLP in New York.
