Julie Schechter is a transactional attorney with broad real estate experience. She has advised and represented cooperative and condominium boards in various subject matters, including drafting and reviewing proprietary leases, bylaws and house rules, and assisting boards in enforcing such documents.

She has significant experience representing newly formed boards in new construction and newly converted cooperative and condominium buildings and helps these boards transition from sponsor to unit owner/shareholder control. In addition, Julie has developed innovative approaches to deriving income from common-area spaces and resolved disputes regarding defaults by sponsors and other unit owners.

Julie has negotiated with architects, engineers, contractors and vendors providing goods and services to co-op and condo associations. Julie has also handled a myriad of construction-related claims including construction defects and RPAPL 881 proceedings. She is frequently sought out for her knowledge and experience, and has lectured on a wide array of construction-related issues involving cooperative and condominium buildings including drafting and negotiating AIA contracts and neighbor license access agreements.

Her experience also includes representation of Mitchell Lama and HDFC cooperatives in the operation of their properties and their relationships with their supervising agencies. She has also reviewed trusts and advised co-op boards whether to permit the trusts to own co-op shares. 

Julie has also represented sellers, purchasers, borrowers and financial institutions in various real estate and loan transactions, and both landlords and tenants in commercial and residential leasing transactions.


Prior to joining the firm, Julie was a partner at a mid-Atlantic law firm.
