Real Property Taxation
Representing exclusively municipalities and school districts, we defend real property assessments on large utility, industrial, and commercial facilities. Through a unique involvement in the appraisal of power generating facilities, the firm has close ties with a network of nationally recognized utility appraisers and engineering experts. At the request of the New York State Bar Association, we co-authored the most recent update of the text of "Review and Reduction of Real Property Assessments in New York," and also submitted an amicus curiae brief on behalf of the New York State Association of Towns in Niagara Mohawk Power Co. v. Town of Geddes, 92, N.Y.2d 192 (1998). Our attorneys have made numerous presentations on this specialized area of practice to attorneys and appraisers.
