Condominium and Cooperative Law

A wide variety of property owners have sought our help for years to create condominiums and cooperatives of all types and sizes. The members of our Real Estate Group have worked with clients on all kinds of sophisticated transactions and legal structures, including:

  • Residential and commercial condominiums
  • Limited equity cooperative
  • Cond-ops (cooperatives within condominiums)

Our attorneys also assist condominium associations and cooperatives in creating, reviewing and amending governing documents. Clients also rely on us to help address problems involving developers, abutters, contractors and other third parties.
