About Homeowner and Tenant Associations

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. continues to be one of the leading law firms in successfully battling building developers on behalf of homeowner associations. Whether representing residents of buildings undergoing construction, newly constructed buildings, or buildings needing or undergoing repair or renovation, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. has prevailed by obtaining settlements forcing repairs in a timely fashion and obtaining judgments totaling millions of dollars.

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. has also been on the forefront of new construction litigation. We have been successful in fashioning non-traditional remedies and using state and federal statutes to negotiate substantial discounts in the purchase price, or in enabling numerous clients to back out of disadvantageous construction and sale contracts at minimal loss of time and money. This has often involved working with governmental agencies and elected representatives to assist in using non-judicial means of getting results. As part of this methodology, our attorneys have proposed, drafted, and critiqued new, pending, and potential legislation – often at the request of the legislators themselves, but just as often in order to advance the interests of the larger community to which our clients belong. In other cases, we have been able to cut-off or threaten the owners’ funding sources. In short, we use all available means within the law to effect changes in the law to benefit our clients. Courtroom success is one way, but not the exclusive medium, for victories won for clients of Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. Our use of unconventional methods bring about these triumphs.

Conducting these intensive campaigns in our cases has led to many cases where settlements were reached before any decisive action had to be taken. Knowing what an Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. backed representation can bring has caused adversaries to offer far better terms to our clients than before we took over representation.

We have served the needs of groups ranging from those as informal as a mere collection of homeowners, to those formally constituted as a corporation with an elected board of directors. We have assisted in the formation and corporate governance of these groups as well as in the critical tasks of representing their interests in battles with sponsors and developers. In arriving at comprehensive settlements with developers, we have had them subsidize the fees incurred by the homeowners associations to minimize the expense of our successes to the individual homeowners.

Well experienced in handling groups large and small, whether pre-organized or organized under our guidance, we tap into the power a group presents to maximize benefits for its membership while minimizing expenses per member. The successes achieved through this approach have led to our recognition as one of the leading real estate litigation firms in New York, and have resulted in our AV® Martindale-Hubbell rating and our Super Lawyers ranking. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. has also been selected into the Registry of Preeminent Lawyers and chosen by Chambers and Partners USA as “One of New York’s Leading Real Estate Lawyers.”
