Real Property Litigation

Some real estate law firms don't have a litigation practice. Those firms may be able to handle real property issues of some complexity, but they have no experience in court.

At Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., we know every detail of the transactional, financing, and regulatory issues affecting real estate projects in New York. We have been handling these issues for complex and high-visibility projects here since 1975. Over the past 40 years, we have encountered virtually every wrinkle in New York real estate law — and that's what makes us so effective in court.

Working with attorneys from other areas at Rosenberg & Estis, P.C., our litigators will get to know your project and proceed effectively, making sure your business needs drive the discussion. We can pull out all the stops in court, if necessary, but our goal is to resolve your dispute in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Issues we routinely handle for our clients include contract disputes, construction disputes, problems with tenants or residents, leasing problems, subsidized housing or rent regulation issues, illegal loft conversions, partnership and LLC (limited liability company) dissolutions, zoning problems — if it involves real estate, Rosenberg & Estis, P.C. can handle it.

R&E's trial lawyers have achieved notable successes for clients large and small in litigation before:

  • New York City administrative agencies such as the Human Rights Commission and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development
  • New York state agencies such as the Division of Housing and Community Renewal and the Division of Human Rights
  • Federal agencies — our attorneys are approved outside counsel for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
  • Municipal, city, county, civil, district and supreme courts across New York
  • Federal district courts

We have also moved the law forward through successful appeals at the state and federal levels.
