About Tenant Associations

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Meade

Adam Leitman Bailey, PC. has been at the forefront of making Ms. Meade’s statement a reality in our representation of groups of tenants. Our successes on behalf of tenant groups and associations have won organized groups millions of dollars, have obtained for tenants large rent abatements, have resulted in negotiated buyouts, have garnered awards of attorney fees, and have forced landlords to make timely repairs. These successes have led to record breaking settlements, court victories making new law in favor of tenants and reversals of owners’ plans to convert, demolish or turn multi-dwelling buildings into single homes.

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. provides one of the most outstanding landlord-tenant practices in New York City and boasts at its helm some of its most renowned and lauded practitioners. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C is one of four law firms with landlord-tenant practices in the entire state of New York to earn an AV® Martindale-Hubbell Rating, and is the only law firm in the State of New York to have both an AV Rating and lawyers with a Super Lawyer ranking. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. is the only law firm in New York City with a landlord-tenant practice to be named by the internationally esteemed Chambers and Partners among “New York’s Leading Real Estate Lawyers.” Chambers & Partners noted that Adam Leitman Bailey makes his “debut in the rankings following enthusiastic praise for his expertise in landlord and tenant litigation. A tenacious and confident litigator who is quick-witted in court and respected by the judges”.

The collective experience of our team has been responsible for winning several landmark decisions in real estate law. Our attorneys have won over a thousand cases in housing court including over 250 appellate court cases many at the highest court, The Court of Appeals. Besides participating in some of the most important landlord-tenant decisions during the past decade, our attorneys have written some 90 books on landlord-tenant law, including encyclopedias and the Housing Court Reporter, a thirty year collection, organization, and analysis of over 50,000 landlord-tenant cases used by most regular housing court practitioners and all landlord-tenant judges. Our firm is also among the landlord-tenant consultants to the New York Times.

While our success in court is well documented, many of these cases have needed more than what the judicial system alone can offer. Therefore, in some cases, we have proposed or commented on potential legislation, and in others we have been able to cut-off or threaten the owners’ funding source. We have also worked with governmental agencies and elected representatives to assist in using non-judicial means to get results. We understand the importance of the media in exposing the inequities our clients suffer, and make carefully targeted use of this resource as well.

Our ability to obtain successful trial or settlement results is unmatched. Our negotiating abilities have been featured on national television’s Dateline NBC. Media outlets have named Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s attorneys among “the best real estate attorneys in New York”, hailing our “prominent real estate attorneys” as “aggressive, tenacious and smart”.
