Ray Hannigan was quoted in The Real Deal’s feature story profiling six of the nine judges who preside over the Commercial Division bench of the New York Supreme Court in Manhattan. To be eligible for the Commercial Division, a suit must carry a price tag of at least $500,000, and as such, these judges have serious decision-making power over significant New York City real estate litigation matters. “The Commercial Division is a huge asset in a sophisticated market like New York, where real estate disputes can be particularly complex,” Hannigan said. “…It’s very nice that you’re able to go into a part where the judges have tremendous experience in dealing with complex agreements and complex issues and don’t need a lot of time to get up to speed because they’ve seen it all before.”
