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 losses 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. More often it is our use of unconventional methods that bring about
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
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, in many cases we have had them
subsidize the fees incurred by the homeowners associations so as 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 though 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."
"The firm is very professional and very forthwith and very casual and very easy to speak to and talk to ... I have been very satisfied with my experience."
