Condominium and Cooperative Law

Property owners have sought our help over the years to create condominiums and cooperatives of all types and sizes. The members of our Real Estate Group have worked with clients to create:

  • Residential and commercial condominiums
  • Limited equity cooperative
  • Cond-ops (cooperatives within condominiums)
  • Mixed used (commercial and residential) condominium

Our attorneys also assist condominium associations and cooperatives boards in creating, reviewing and amending governing documents. Clients also rely on us to help address problems involving developers, abutters, contractors and other third parties. In addition, our expertise in cooperatives and condominiums is invaluable when we represent buyers and sellers of individual coop or condo units.
