Loft Law

We represent individual tenants and tenant groups in obtaining coverage under the Loft Law, adjusting the legal rent and recovering overcharges, guiding them through the legalization process, and through transition into rent stabilization.

Real Estate Litigation

We offer a broad range of real estate litigation representation, providing defense to residential and commercial tenants in landlord-tenant disputes and eviction proceedings, representing individual owners or Boards in condominium or cooperative disputes, defending property owners from foreclosure, seeking remedies for nuisance, and litigating complex land use matters.

Real Estate Transactions

Our firm is well versed in residential and commercial real estate transactions, from the simple to the complex. We represent purchasers and sellers in sales of homes, condominiums, or cooperatives. We handle negotiation of complex commercial leases. We provide real estate development representation — handling conversion of property to condominium or cooperative status through the filing of an offering plan or request for a no-action letter from the New York State Attorney General.

Trusts and Estates

Ween & Kozek offers trusts and estates representation, drafting and handling execution of wills, trusts, living wills, and health care proxies. We offer advice on estate planning, and handle representation of estates through the probate and administration processes.

 

Art and Media

Ween & Kozek has been providing legal services to the artist community for decades, providing “one stop shop” representation to fine artists in connection with artwork transactions, artist-dealer relations, and tax and estate planning, including advisement on issues specific to private foundations and other nonprofits. In addition to working with artists, the firm offers a comprehensive suite of legal services specially geared toward business clients in creative industries spanning the gamut of media, from film production to publishing to interactive media. We also handle all facets of intellectual property management and enforcement, from complex licensing agreements to copyright and trademark infringement litigation.

Civil Rights

We represent clients from all walks of life who have been victims of discrimination, police misconduct, and other unlawful acts, policies, or practices that impinge on fundamental rights and freedoms. We work hard to achieve justice for all those who have been treated unfairly or wronged by the system designed to protect them, in violation of their civil rights.
