Landlord & Tenant

Our Landlord/Tenant group represents commercial and residential landlords, tenant associations, and tenants including proprietary lease tenants, in their disputes over rent, lease violations, privacy, nuisance, repairs, security, lease terms and other issues.

Additionally, on behalf of landlords, our attorneys regularly appear before the New York City Civil Court, New York State Supreme Court, the United States Bankruptcy Court and the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR), the agency responsible for implementing the laws and regulations that govern rent-controlled and rent-stabilized tenancies.

Some of the services we provide in this area include appearing before, and defending against code violations issued, by the Department of Buildings, the Department of Sanitation, the Department of Environmental Protection and the New York City Fire Department. In this regard, we appear on behalf of our clients before the Environmental Control Board and New York City Criminal Court.

Our firm strives to obtain the best results for our clients. Where appropriate, we will settle such disputes in the court’s resolution part or in arbitration. However, when a trial is advisable, we bring experience and a well-deserved reputation as aggressive litigators.
