Mr. Riopelle represented the National Arts Club and its Board in connection with a myriad of notorious civil litigations and regulatory investigations relating to alleged wrongdoing by a small clique of individuals who had dominated and controlled the Club for many years.

Mr. Riopelle assisted the Club in responding to numerous regulatory and law enforcement investigations of its operations, and represented an insurgent Board of Governors in its efforts to oust the president of the Club.  Ultimately, Mr. Riopelle persuaded the Attorney General’s Office not to discipline the Club or its governors, while successfully defending and prosecuting a series of complex civil litigations between the Club and its former president.
