The “Power Law 50” list recognizes 50 of New York’s most influential attorneys outside of government who demonstrate and command an in-depth understanding of the laws governing their practices.
Erica focuses her practice on the Martin Act—New York’s blue-sky law governing real estate securities—and regularly represents for-profit and nonprofit developers, boards, lenders and government agencies on an array of real estate matters.
In 2018 Erica launched Nixon Peabody’s Co-ops and Condos practice team, tapping into her extensive experience as the chief of the Real Estate Finance Bureau of the New York Attorney General’s office. Nixon Peabody is the only AmLaw 100 firm in New York with a dedicated Cooperatives and Condominiums practice team with capabilities in both market-rate and affordable for-sale housing.
“I cannot express enough what an honor it is to be recognized alongside some of the state’s smartest and most respected attorneys,” said Erica Buckley. “I will continue, together with my team, to navigate New York’s dynamic real estate landscape, to work with clients and provide affordable for-sale housing to New Yorkers.”
When she’s not leading the firm’s Co-ops and Condos practice team, Erica is an active member of various organizations, including the CUNY School of Law Foundation Board, Habitat for Humanity NYC Leadership Board, the New York Mortgage Coalition Board and the Real Estate Board of New York. Erica is also the lead author of New York Law Journal’s quarterly column “Ask the Former Regulator.”
