Real Property Tax Certiorari & Condemnation

The attorneys in our Real Property Tax Certiorari and Condemnation Practice Group concentrate in administrative and judicial real estate tax review proceedings involving real property tax assessments in New York State. We have successfully obtained over a billion dollars in real estate tax refunds for the firm’s commercial, industrial and residential clients.

We have also distinguished ourselves in the area of real estate condemnation law through our representation of clients in eminent domain proceedings for some of the largest government appropriations in New York. We have tried cases before the New York State Supreme Court, Court of Claims, and the United States District Courts.

Some of our noteworthy cases include the Times Square Development Project, the New York Stock Exchange Project, the United States Postal Service Project on Third Avenue in Manhattan, the M.T.A. Second Avenue Subway Project, and the Port Authority Hudson Tunnel Project.

In each case, our clients recovered condemnation awards substantially in excess of the condemnors’ initial offers of settlement.
