Our lawyers bring over 250 years of combined wide-ranging experience to resolving complex challenges related to cooperative and condominium law. Our lawyers have also been instrumental in the development of co-op and condo law, specifically in New York, having helped to create contracts of sale, alteration agreements and other agreements now used as industry standards. Three of our lawyers have served terms as chair of the Cooperative and Condominium Committee of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, and one is the former co-chair of the Real Property Law Section Condominiums and Cooperatives Committee of the New York State Bar Association.

Given their depth of experience and long-standing reputation, our lawyers offer a wide range of services to our clients including management and governance issues, transactions, dispute resolution and litigation.

The Cooperative and Condominium Law team currently acts as general counsel to approximately 400 cooperative and condominium clients in all segments of the New York City and metropolitan area market.

Our team of seasoned lawyers can easily scale and provide a tailored approach based on the needs of each individual client. We have experience working with some of the most prestigious buildings and largest building complexes, as well as with smaller buildings, Mitchell-Lama cooperatives, Housing Development Fund Corporation (HDFC) cooperatives, individual unit owners and shareholders.

We have successfully litigated a broad range of matters, including disputes with sponsors on myriad issues, construction disputes with contractors and vendors, matters to establish the rights and powers of boards on such diverse issues as subleasing, unauthorized occupants, fixing carrying charges, alterations to apartments, noise, odors and other quality of life issues.  We also regularly address matters regarding interpretation of governing documents and issues regarding elections and proxies. Our lawyers are also very experienced in handling transactions involving our co-op and condo clients, from refinancing, to contracts with vendors and contractors, to selling (or licensing) common areas to individual owners and all other aspects of cooperative and condominium representation.

Our Cooperative and Condominium Law lawyers make sure our clients are kept up to date by presenting a monthly speaker series for board members and managers and issuing flyers whenever new statutes or caselaw impact decisions of boards.
