Real Estate Litigation

Our real estate litigators work closely with our real estate team to help clients manage potential risk, and when necessary, find a cost effective resolution to their potential litigation.

We regularly handle a variety of claims that arise during construction, including design and construction defects, insurance claims, contractor and sub-contractor disputes, mechanics’ liens, and disputes with municipal agencies. In addition, we regularly are retained in disputes among partners and fiduciaries. These include issues surrounding partnership accountings, contract claims, valuation, breach of fiduciary duty and the disposition and sale of partnership assets and interests.

We represent a large number of real property owners and developers, as well as real estate industry groups, in many areas of litigation, including:

  • Land use restrictions and zoning
  • Valuation of real property and interests in real property
  • Challenges to state and municipal regulations adversely affecting the real estate industry
  • Condemnation and “takings”
  • Disputes involving cooperative and condominium operations and conversions
  • Martin Act investigations of cooperative and condominium offering plans
  • Real estate taxation and exemption issues and tax certiorari proceedings
  • Construction and building design defects
  • Commercial landlord/tenant disputes
  • Mortgage foreclosures
  • Partition actions
  • Real property contact disputes
