Skilled legal advocacy in New York Landlord-Tenant matters

Graubard Miller advocates for our clients in landlord/tenant matters in Civil Court, Supreme Court and appellate courts. We handle commercial and residential holdover proceedings as well as commercial nonpayment proceedings, and contract and lease disputes. We provide defense against claims of rent overcharge and harassment in proceedings and class actions.
