Experienced Representation In NYC Loft Law Matters

The Loft Law practice group at Borah Goldstein is chaired by attorney David R. Brody, who has more than 40 years of experience representing owners of loft buildings in New York City.

This practice group offers a wide array of services to owners of buildings affected by the Loft Law. We have an active and cutting-edge practice before the Loft Board in which we defend against Loft Law coverage/tenant protection claims and rent overcharge claims. We also engage in the legalization process conducted at the Loft Board. We litigate legalization timetable extensions and the panoply of available issues.

Who We Serve And Proceedings We Handle

Our attorneys provide legal counsel to owners, developers, architects and prospective purchasers interested in developing loft buildings in New York City. This includes handling such matters as risk assessment, mitigation, obtaining and amending Certificates of Occupancy, rent regulatory issues, zoning, construction law and litigation before the Loft Board, Supreme Courts, and Civil Courts, negotiated settlements (“buyouts”), and financing issues.

We also practice before administrative agencies, including the Department of Buildings (DOB) and the Office of Administrative Tribunals and Hearings (“OATH” formerly the Environmental Control Board (“ECB”)) and assist in proceedings before the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA).

How We Have Shaped New York’s Loft Law

Our attorneys have helped shape the evolution of the Loft Law. We have assisted in lobbying for changes to the Loft Law, and we have provided the Loft Board with input as to proposed regulations.

We Consult With Judges And Train Attorneys On The Loft Law

In addition to influencing the legal and regulatory landscape surrounding the Loft Law, our lawyers have educated judges and attorneys on its nuances. We have also appeared in panel discussions at the Loft Board, and we have consulted with and delivered lectures to the Civil Court Judges. Additionally, attorney David Brody has presented CLE courses on Loft Law for other attorneys.
