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.
