Developer or board. For-profit or nonprofit. Affordable housing, middle-market or luxury.
Clients on every side of a cooperative or condominium deal can be confident that NP attorneys have the experience, knowledge and skills to achieve the outcome they want. We represent developers in every stage of their project formation—shepherding them through cooperative policy statements, no-action applications, exemption applications and offering plans.
Our team, led by the former chief of the Real Estate Finance Bureau of the New York Attorney General’s office, has unparalleled experience with the Martin Act—New York’s blue sky law regulating cooperatives, condominiums and other real estate investments. Clients facing investigation by regulators count on us to reach a swift resolution, so they can get back to work.
We handle all aspects of cooperative share and condominium unit matters—from contract to closing—in house, saving our clients time and money. No matter where you are in the market, our team will get the deal done.
We know that when a client hands over the keys to a completed project, it is just the beginning of a lengthy process ensuring the property remains a source of neighborhood pride for decades to come. That’s why we also work with cooperative and condominium boards on complex legal issues, such as negotiating with city and state agencies on tax incentives and other matters and advising on major corporate changes to governing documents.
