New York City Real Estate Attorneys
Rosenberg & Estis, P.C. is one of New York’s leading real estate law firms, providing expert representation in commercial and residential real estate transactions, litigation, administrative law proceedings and appeals.
We are known as the best — not the biggest — real estate law firm in Manhattan. For four decades, financial institutions, developers and building owners have relied on Rosenberg & Estis’ unique ability to recognize and deal with all legal aspects of complex real estate projects.
Building owners and developers call upon our expertise to carry out projects involving major residential and office buildings, hotels, mixed-use projects, condo and co-op conversions, renovations and construction. Rosenberg & Estis advises and represents clients on a wide range of land-use matters such as rezonings, special permits, variances, air rights transfers, zoning lot mergers and development agreements. We skillfully guide our clients through New York’s complex rent regulation laws governing residential housing, assisting them in navigating issues such as rent increases, due diligence, redevelopment and subsidized housing and benefit programs.
Our ever-growing roster of attorneys have provided legal guidance to many of the highest-profile office developments in Manhattan, including One Bryant Park, One World Trade Center and Four Times Square. We are known for our tenacity, as well as our attention to detail in overseeing client projects from inception to completion.
Our transactional practice focuses on representing clients in all facets of New York’s real estate market. We undertake financing, leasing, entity formation, and purchases and sales for clients of all types and sizes.
Our firm has a strong litigation group that represents clients in disputes involving any sector of residential or commercial real estate. The breadth of our litigation experience and expertise has enabled the firm to earn the designation as Approved Outside Counsel to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
We also represent clients on appeals, and often make law through the appeals process. For example, in Manocherian v. Lenox Hill Hospital, at the expense of a not-for-profit hospital, we were successful in having declared unconstitutional the rent stabilization law that penalized our client, the building owner.
