Compliance and Administrative Law

Efficient Solutions to Advance Your Goals

Doing business in New York City comes with significant and, at times, frustrating regulations. From permit and license applications to code enforcement and nuisance abatement proceedings – we identify steps to achieve compliance so that you can focus on growing your business.

We advise on matters involving the central body of laws governing these activities – the New York City Administrative Code. Through established relationships with administrative agencies, we understand the players involved and can quickly assess and resolve the issues.

Partnering with our Real Estate and Construction Practice Groups, we counsel property owners, developers, architects and engineers, on zoning and land use issues, including the review and interpretation of New York City Zoning Resolution provisions that are critical to development plans.

We represent clients before city agencies, boards and commissions, including:

  • Board of Standards and Appeals

  • City Planning Commission
  • Department of Buildings
  • Department of Consumer Affairs
  • Department of Environmental Protection
  • Department of Finance
