Richard is a partner at Klein Greco & Associates LLP.  Richard brings much to the firm as his experience is long and varied.  He became a real estate attorney after having worked for several years in his family’s real estate business where he did real estate management and oversaw leasing and sales of both commercial and residential properties.

His first job after graduating from the evening division of Fordham University School of Law was working in the Real Estate Litigation Division of the New York City Law Department.  As such, he worked closely with several City agencies on various real estate matters, including the New York City Housing Preservation and Development Agency, the Human Resources Administration and the Economic Development Corporation.  As a result of his performance while at the Law Department, Richard was recognized by the Committee of Municipal Affairs of the New York City Bar Association and awarded its prize for Outstanding Achievement as an Assistant Corporation Counsel.

After that, Richard worked at a small firm on Long Island where in addition to real estate, he also practiced criminal and matrimonial law.  However, always being the entrepreneur, when an opportunity presented itself, Richard took it and bought a restaurant business in Brooklyn.  In order to better focus on the restaurant, Richard decided at the same time to go out on his own and become a solo practitioner focusing solely on real estate.  On his own, Richard’s practice included residential and commercial transactions, commercial leasing, bank representation, general governance of cooperative and condominium buildings, and real estate litigation.

While the restaurant lasted approximately four (4) years, Richard successfully maintained his solo law practice for sixteen (16) years until he was solicited to join a small Manhattan law firm as a partner to head up its cooperative/condominium department.  While there, Richard oversaw the legal representation of approximately seventy-five (75) cooperative and condominium buildings.  This representation included the preparation and/or negotiation of vendor contracts, negotiating and drafting commercial leases for retail space, refinancing of underlying mortgages, landlord-tenant litigation, and providing counsel to the boards on various issues which confront them, whether it involved updating the operative documents, deciding who is responsible for a certain repair to what constitutes objectionable conduct by a resident.

Now at Klein Greco & Associates LLP, Richard is all about building relationships with his clients and helping them navigate the New York real estate scene.  With both litigation and transactional experience, Richard helps his clients through problems with the aim of solving them expeditiously and always to his clients’ satisfaction.

When he is not working on behalf of his clients, Richard enjoys spending time with his two daughters, solving crossword puzzles and listening to music.  While Richard is a Westchester County resident, he grew up in Queens, New York and loves exploring the City.
