Chip Seminar on Violations a Big Success
On October 20th, CHIP held the second seminar in its fall seminar series: its subject was “How to Avoid City-Issued Violations— How to Prevent Them and How to Cure Them.” The event was co-sponsored with The Vendome Group, publishers of the Apartment Law Insider, and was held at the New York County Lawyers Association. Andrew Hoffman, who is both the Chairman of CHIP and a member of the Board of Advisors of ALI, was the morning’s deft moderator.
