New York Landlord and Tenant Lawyers

iStock_000008511772XSmallOur Landlord and Tenant practice group assists our client with a broad range of services related to Landlord/Tenants disputes. Whether through negotiation or litigation, our group aids with contract and statutory rights enforcement as well as the prevention of forfeiture or loss of a tenant’s home or business premises. Landlord and tenant law in New York State is driven by legislation and case law. The law in this area is constantly evolving into more complicated rules and procedures that often invoke other, interrelated areas of law. Litigation in this field is complex, and the administrative procedures can be confusing without the guidance of a practiced lawyer specializing in landlord/tenant law.
