Extensive Knowledge Of Commercial Real Estate Law

Our firm’s corporate, banking and litigation attorneys provide our clients with a complete range of legal services.
Real Estate Litigation In New York
Our firm provides a full range of real estate litigation services to commercial and individual clients. We represent developers, owners, property managers, condominium and housing associations, tenants, financial institutions and investors in all types of disputes, including those arising from:
- Adverse possession
- Brokerage commissions
- Construction contracts
- Foreign national purchases and sales
- Partnership and shareholder disputes
- Property management
- Rights of way
We represent clients in disputes arising out of commercial and residential leaseholds, as well as cooperative and condominium litigation, including trials and appeals. At the landlord-tenant dispute level, we have experience in cases involving nonpayment, holdover and breach of lease matters involving a wide variety of claims.
For example, we have handled claims such as alleged failure of the landlord to make necessary repairs, constructive eviction claims, illegal subleases, the illusory tenant doctrine, so-called “Yellowstone injunctions” to prevent lease termination, luxury rent decontrol claims and other problems.
At the cooperative and condominium level, we have handled claims involving alleged misrepresentations in offering plans and faulty construction, as well as statutory claims for alleged abuse by a sponsor. As with our commercial litigation practice, we explore settlement options, counsel our clients in risk avoidance and attempt to assess for them the potential costs and benefits of proceeding with litigation.
