NEW YORK—December 22, 2022—Braverman Greenspun P.C. announced today that Benjamin Fox Tracy has been promoted to partner, effective January 1, 2023.
“Benjamin’s transactional knowledge and litigation expertise make him a tremendous asset to our clients on a broad range of subject matters,” said Braverman Greenspun principal and managing partner Robert Braverman. “The depth of his abilities and accomplishments enhances the representation we provide to our clients and expands the scope of our practice. We are thrilled to welcome him to the partnership.”
At Braverman Greenspun, Benjamin’s practice focuses on counseling clients in a wide array of transactions and litigation involving cooperatives and condominiums. Benjamin specializes in license agreements, which requires nuanced knowledge of the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law and the New York City Building Code. He has extensive experience advising on construction-related contracts, litigations and disputes. Benjamin also provides general counsel services to cooperative and condominium boards by overseeing annual meetings and elections, and handling various claims, including recently securing two dismissals of race discrimination claims before the New York City Commission on Human Rights.
Most recently, on behalf of a nonprofit real estate developer, Benjamin successfully prosecuted a contempt motion against an adjacent neighbor who defied a court order to delay the developer’s affordable housing development project. Benjamin secured fines exceeding $300,000 against the neighbor for the losses incurred by the developer during the work stoppage period, including attorney’s fees.
Outside of his legal work, Benjamin hosts an annual charity event—The Champagne and Doughnuts Reception—which raises money for The Henry Viscardi School, a pre-K through 12th grade school for children with disabilities.
Before entering private practice, Benjamin served as an Assistant Corporation Counsel in the Office of the Corporation Counsel for the City of New York where he 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. Before joining Braverman Greenspun in 2019, Benjamin was an associate at a boutique construction law firm.
Benjamin holds a B.A. from Fairfield University and a J.D., summa cum laude, from Touro Law Center. During law school, he served as research editor for the Touro Law Review.
