About Real Estate Litigation

As one of New York’s premier real estate litigation firms, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. has participated and prevailed in many of the most important New York real estate cases of the new millennium, as reflected in numerous published and unpublished decisions on novel legal issues. Our attorneys have won over a thousand cases in the courts in the state of New York including State Supreme, Housing, Civil and Federal courts in addition to over 250 appellate court cases, many at New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals.

Our successes have led to the highest honors and awards from the bar and ranking organizations. Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. is the only real estate litigation law firm with under 30 attorneys that has received an AV® Martindale-Hubbell rating, Super Lawyers honors, and selection into the Registry of Preeminent Lawyers as well as the American College of Real Estate Lawyers. Four of our attorneys have received an AV rating and six have received super lawyer honors.

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. is also the only real estate litigation law firm in New York City named by the internationally esteemed Chambers & 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” and “a tenacious and confident litigator who is quick-witted in court and respected by the judges.” In other years,Chambers & Partners remarked that Bailey is “an extraordinary practitioner who gets great results” quoting a client on Mr. Bailey’s “ability to anticipate things before they happen.” A New York State Judge wrote that one Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. attorney “was the best trial lawyer I saw in my nine years as a Judge in New York City.”

Real Estate Weekly noted that “Adam Leitman Bailey has made a name for himself with his success winning cases in the courtroom.” The New York Real Estate Journal declared Mr. Bailey to be “one of New York’s best real estate attorneys.” The New York Times praised the firm’s “novel” strategy in one case and remarked that in another Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. “fought on… grinding through excruciating detail and obscure Perry Mason moments.” After Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. used a forgotten statute to prevail in a landmark federal case, the Wall Street Journal quoted a prominent New York attorney calling the holding a “game changer” affecting real estate nationwide.

Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. also takes great satisfaction in garnering victories for our clients at the bargaining table as well as in the courtroom. Recent negotiating victories have saved the day for clients ranging from elderly widows to universally recognized international corporations. Our negotiation and persuasion abilities have been featured on national television’s Dateline NBC where it noted that Mr. Bailey is “aggressive, tenacious and smart” when asking Mr. Bailey to share his negotiating secrets on its nationally syndicated television program.

Since we solely practice real estate law, we are intimately familiar with both its complexity and constant evolution. Many of the judges we appear before recognize the firm’s experience on a myriad of real estate issues. Our preeminence in the field is further demonstrated in the legislation we have drafted on behalf of our clients, the more than ninety books published and numerous New York Law Journal real estate columns we have published, as well as the many articles in leading real estate periodicals authored by our attorneys, and our being chosen as the primary drafter of leases by Blumberg Forms. These books include 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.

As we understand that cases often cannot be won based on a witness’s testimony alone, our investigative skills and familiarity with advanced technology have greatly enhanced the firm’s success rate. Our courtroom attorneys are able to receive real time results from our research staff as issues arise during trials, thus providing instant authoritative answers to judges’ questions. This formula has caused companies both small and large, as well as their general counsel, to rely on our advice, which in turn, has led to our representation of a number of the largest companies in the United States.
