Appellate Litigation

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. has assembled a team consisting of many of the best real estate appellate attorneys in the state of New York.

The collective experience of this team has been responsible for winning several landmark decisions in real estate law. These attorneys have won more appellate cases at the Court of Appeals and its subsidiary appellate courts than any other real estate practitioner. In addition, an in-house study using a Westlaw search found that Jeffrey M. Metz has won more real estate appellate cases than any other practicing attorney. Members of this team have participated in over three hundred and fifty appeals and are best known for these dozen landmark cases representing hundreds of others:

These successes have led to the firm’s recognition as a leader in real estate law and resulted in the firm receiving prestigious awards given to New York real estate attorneys. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. is the only New York real estate litigation law firm with under 30 attorneys to receive the Leading Real Estate Lawyer honors from Chambers USA, the highest rating from Martindale-Hubbell, AV, Super Lawyers honors, Best Lawyers, Best Law Firms and selection into the Bar Registry of Preeminent Lawyers as well as the American College of Real Estate Lawyers.

One of the foundations of the Appellate Bureau’s successes comes from the fact that its attorneys have written some 80 books on landlord-tenant law, including encyclopedias and the Housing Court Reporter, a twenty-five year collection, organization, and analysis of over 60,000 landlord-tenant cases used by most regular housing court practitioners and all landlord-tenant judges. Furthermore, two of these attorneys have been tapped for the annual lectures to the judges and chambers of the Appellate Terms of the First and Second Judicial Departments at their annual seminar as well as to housing court judges.

This record of achievement has made the Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. Appellate Bureau the law firm of choice for all appeals.
