My practice focuses on counseling clients in a wide array of transactions and litigation involving cooperatives and condominiums.

Prior to joining the firm, I represented design professionals, developers, and cooperative/condominium boards in the negotiations of contracts related to construction projects and in construction-related litigations and disputes, including those associated with breach of contract, construction defects and delays, quantum meruit, unjust enrichment, and mechanic’s lien foreclosures.

Before entering private practice, I served as an Assistant Corporation Counsel in the Office of the Corporation Counsel for the City of New York. In that role, I defended the City of New York, its agencies, and high-level officials in proceedings before federal and state courts, as well as before administrative tribunals. I also directly advised the Office of the Mayor and commissioners of city agencies regarding various policy initiative, and negotiated terms of construction contracts with contractors doing business with the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.

Utilizing my extensive experience, I strive to provide my clients with sound advice on a broad range of issues in a cost-effective manner.
