Experienced Representation In NYC Loft Law Matters

The Loft Law practice group at Borah Goldstein is chaired by David R. Brody, who has forty years of experience representing Owners of loft buildings.  The group also includes Martha Cruz, who has fourteen years of experience at the New York City Loft Board, including ten years as Deputy General Counsel.

This practice group offers a wide array of services to owners of buildings that are or could be 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, rent overcharge claims and engage in the legalization process conducted at the Loft Board.  We litigate legalization timetable extensions and the panoply of available issues.

Our attorneys provide legal counsel to owners, developers, architects and prospective purchasers interested in developing loft buildings.  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 Environmental Control Board (ECB)and assisting in proceedings before the Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA).

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 have appeared in panel discussions at the Loft Board; we have also consulted with and delivered lectures to the Judges in Civil Court.  David Brody has presented CLE courses on Loft Law.

For information about what we can do to help with your Loft Law concerns, please call our office at 212-431-1300 or send us an email to arrange a time to speak to one of our lawyers.
