Braverman Greenspun Combines with Top Real Estate Boutique, Cements Status as Leading Law Firm for Condos and Co-ops in New York

NEW YORK--()--Braverman Greenspun P.C., a leading representative of condominium and cooperative boards in New York for more than 50 years, has combined with Finder Novick Kerrigan LLP, a highly regarded boutique with a similar concentration and a history of influential work in cooperative and condominium law. With the union, the combined firm becomes the premier legal adviser to condominiums and cooperatives in New York, representing more than 300 buildings in the tri-state area, including a number of New York City’s most exclusive residential properties. It will retain the name Braverman Greenspun.

“We have great admiration for the lawyers of Finder Novick Kerrigan and the role they have played shaping real estate law in New York,” said Robert Braverman, managing partner of Braverman Greenspun. “More importantly, we have great affection for them as colleagues and friends. We are delighted to be working together as one firm.”

The combination signals Braverman Greenspun’s continued commitment to its real estate practice, which has driven the firm since its founding by Robert Braverman’s father, Ed, in 1968. Today, the firm represents buildings ranging from historic Upper East Side cooperatives to luxury Tribeca condominiums, insurers, and unit owners in high-stakes conflicts with boards. In addition to their broad background in real estate, the lawyers of Finder Novick Kerrigan bring a great depth of experience representing cooperative and condominium boards. Beginning in the 1980s, their firm was instrumental in executing the wave of co-op conversions that swept New York City.

“Our history of cooperative representation makes an ideal complement to Braverman Greenspun’s well-known work with condominium boards,” said Michael Finder, co-founding partner of Finder Novick Kerrigan. “Our collective experience brings the best of both worlds together in one place.”

The three new lawyers joining Braverman Greenspun as partners are:

  • Michael Finder, who focuses on condominium and cooperative board representation and commercial and residential real estate transactions, including leases, sales, financings, and workouts;
  • Thomas Kerrigan, who, in addition to serving as general counsel to numerous condominium and cooperative boards, provides representation on a variety of real estate matters including commercial leasing and financing, as well as on real estate and general litigation, and has been involved in a number of seminal decisions in the area of cooperative and condominium law;
  • Ben Flavin, who, in addition to advising condominium and cooperative boards, has particular expertise working with Housing Development Fund Corporations (HDFCs) throughout New York City.

Additionally, Mohit Karwasra joins Braverman Greenspun as an associate. The combined firm expands the headcount to 21 lawyers, strengthening the firm’s position as a leader in condominium and cooperative law.
