STEVEN S. ANDERSON, ESQ.
Steven S. Anderson is a member of the firm and focuses his practice in business and real estate litigation and cooperative and condominium law.
In the late 1980’s, with a seven-year background in litigation – much of it defending multi-million dollar, multi-party construction and real estate related lawsuits on behalf of the City of New York – Mr. Anderson started his own firm. In that capacity, Mr. Anderson has handled and currently handles sophisticated commercial and real estate litigations and represents cooperatives and condominiums as both litigation and general counsel. For almost a decade, he served on the panel of attorneys appointed by a major insurer of New York cooperative and condominium Boards, and defended Boards against myriad unit owner lawsuits and claims. He has had hundreds of oral arguments and court appearances, managed dozens of lengthy multi-million dollar lawsuits, written hundreds of briefs (dozens of appeal briefs), and has tried cases, including conducting a three-month jury trial, along with co-counsel, Mitchel Ochs, of a case in New York Supreme Court, resulting in an $18 million judgment for a cooperative Board of Directors. He brings his litigation background when he serves as general and litigation counsel for cooperative and condominium boards.
Mr. Anderson received his B.A. from Brandeis University in 1979, where he graduated summa cum laude and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. He received his J.D., and graduated with honors, from George Washington University Law School in 1982. Mr. Anderson was admitted to the Bar of the State of New York in 1982 and the Bar of the State of New Jersey in 1983.
Mr. Anderson was associated with the Real Estate Litigation Department of the New York City Law Department from 1982 to 1987, serving as Assistant Chief from 1985 to 1987. He was associated with the firm of Tenzer Greenblatt from 1987 to 1988, and with Mandel Resnik & Mortman, P.C. from 1988 to 1989. Since 1989, Mr. Anderson has been a name partner practicing in his own firm.
