Damaris Claudio-Williams is the Cooperative and Condominium Specialist for Nixon Peabody’s full-service Cooperatives and Condominiums team. Damaris provides assistance on transactional and investigative matters involving affordable and market-rate real estate. She has approximately 20 years of experience in the area of real estate law.
I handle various aspects of matters involving cooperatives, condominiums, and innovative models such as community land trusts and co-housing. I also assist our attorneys in managing complex government investigations and settlements. I prepare paper and digital submissions to the New York Attorney General’s office such as offering plans, exemption applications, and no-action letter requests. I also assist the team on contracts, closings, and share exchanges for both new construction and rental conversion projects, with an emphasis on affordable transactions. I also oversee the New York lobby registration process for members of the Cooperatives and Condominiums team.
