|Info||Filippi, a partner in the firm of Patberg Carmody Ging & Filippi, is admitted to practice law in courts ranging from Erie County Court to the U.S. Supreme Court. |
Filippi is the part-owner of two historic buildings at 502-504 State St. and 506 State St. The first floors of those two buildings will house a Starbucks coffee shop and an authentic Irish pub, but Filippi does not have an ownership interest in those two commercial businesses.
Filippi also is the part-owner of the former Daka Paper Co. building, now known as the Filippi-Hebert Centre, 144 W. 13th St. But while Filippi's brother, Ron, is one of the owners of the dance club inside the building, Rick Filippi's role is limited to that of a landlord there, too.
Filippi also holds part ownership stakes in the buildings that house Sullivan's Pub & Eatery, 301 French St., and Hector's Restaurant, 802 W. 18th St. But in both those businesses, Filippi is a shareholder in a corporation that owns the businesses and the liquor licenses.
Filippi and two associates were charged by the state Attorney General's Office in December 2004 with trying to personally profit from a land-speculation deal, using inside information gleaned from the mayor's office. All three defendants deny the charges.
