We are one of the only full-service law firms with a department exclusively devoted to appealing New York City real estate tax assessments and other related real estate tax matters.
Our tax certiorari team regularly negotiates and crafts tax strategies for multimillion-dollar assessment reductions for office buildings, retail stores, shopping centers, hotels, industrial facilities and residential properties, including rental buildings, cooperatives and condominiums.
We 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. We regularly handle applications for real property tax exemptions with the New York City Department of Finance, Department of Housing Preservation and Development, Economic Development Corporation and the Industrial Development Agency.
Our lawyers also have extensive experience counseling clients on how to leverage various tax incentive programs, including the Industrial & Commercial Abatement Program (ICAP), 420a, 421a and the Affordable New York Housing Program, to achieve their tax-savings goals.
