I joined Braverman Greenspun, P.C. in 2018 and focus my practice on real estate and commercial litigation. I also provide general counsel services to our condominium and cooperative clients.

Prior to joining the firm, I handled a wide array of litigation and transactional matters for a diverse group of clients, including prominent property owners and developers, financial institutions, and insurance companies. I have litigated disputes at the trial and appellate levels in almost all of New York’s city, state, federal, and administrative courts, as well as many federal district and appellate courts throughout the county. I have served as regulatory due diligence counsel in countless transactions and development projects in emergent neighborhoods throughout lower Manhattan and Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and I am well-versed in all forms of rent regulation, including the “Loft Law” and Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 (“HSTPA”).

I credit my multidisciplinary background and solution-driven approach to practice as the keys to achieving successful outcomes for our clients. My experience with real estate litigation, transactions, and operational matters allows me to identify potential issues, effectively protect our clients’ interests, and ensure that they are advantageously situated if and when a dispute arises. When litigation cannot be avoided, my substantive real estate background and procedural skillset allow me to aggressively and efficiently advocate for our clients’ interests.
