Litman & Jacobs is a boutique law firm. Our practice concentrates in the following areas:
Our real estate clients include some of the most successful property owners and management companies in New York. We represent a wide array of commercial clients on a host of transactional matters. Our practice includes representation of sellers and purchasers, landlords and tenants, and creditors and debtors in all manner of real estate and commercial matters. The experience we have amassed serves us well regardless of which side of a transaction we represent; having been on the other side of a deal many times, we have an acute understanding of the goals and objectives of the other party and their attorneys.
As a small firm of experienced professionals, we pride ourselves on giving our clients the care and attention they deserve. We answer phone calls and emails promptly and keep our clients informed of the progress of their matters. The extent and quality of our services is manifest in the number of clients we have represented for many years. In order to serve our clients we have learned their businesses, climbed on their rooftops, and visited their showrooms. This “hands on” approach enables us to represent clients efficiently, with the goal of resolving conflicts without needless expense. We advise many types of businesses on the best way to structure and organize their transactions. We represent architectural firms, art galleries, tutoring companies, production companies, brokerage firms, doctors, and dentists, and many other small and medium sized businesses, as well as not-for-profit organizations, all of which benefit from our experience.
In those instances where further negotiation would prove futile, we tenaciously litigate on behalf of our clients in court or in arbitration. We litigate real estate, commercial and business disputes involving issues as diverse as the right to possess demised premises, the right to obtain “Yellowstone” relief, the right to benefit from bankruptcy court stays, the enforceability of non-competition agreements, and the recapture of fraudulently conveyed property. We have arbitrated cases involving a wide range of matters, including the fair market value of real property and the extent of compensation payable to a moving company that relocated a 500 person corporate headquarters and the amount of compensation due for the construction of five fast food restaurants. We also handle a wide range of appeals, drawing upon our excellent issue identification and research skills.
Litman & Jacobs has been in practice for more than 20 years and our partners each possess decades of experience. Our success has been based upon the interest, enthusiasm, responsiveness and knowledge we bring to every matter we handle. Our clients rely on us for the legal and strategic guidance critical to their businesses. We are a results-oriented firm that prides itself on the practical solutions we bring to our clients’ problems.
