Our attorneys handle commercial matters for businesses across numerous industries sectors – hospitality, retail, biotechnology, education, manufacturing, financial and professional services, and nonprofit and religious organizations, as well as high-end residential matters for individuals.

Yankwitt LLP routinely partners with highly regarded transactional real estate attorneys who require our aggressive advocacy and creative problem solving to service clients in litigation arising out of property disputes. Critical to our success in real estate matters is the depth of our business litigation experience and our state and federal court experience: All of our Westchester-based attorneys are former federal prosecutors and/or clerked for state or federal judges, a combination rarely found outside New York City.

  • Commercial Leasing Disputes

  • Easements & Boundary Disputes
  • Land Use & Zoning Disputes
  • Title Insurance & Other Insurance Coverage Issues
  • COVID-19-related Litigation

Yankwitt LLP works to maximize our clients’ desired outcomes by providing personalized service and tailoring litigation plans to each client’s specific needs and goals, be it through settlement, arbitration or at trial. We emphasize smart, lean staffing and cost-effective litigation strategies, and strive to foster attorney-client relationships founded on honesty, transparency, and open and frequent communication.
