Herrick is a recognized leader in real estate litigation, with significant experience litigating the full range of real estate disputes across the U.S.

Our litigators are an integrated part of our real estate department, one of the largest and most diverse commercial real estate law practices in the region. We are steeped in the real estate industry, so we work smarter and faster than general litigators, who need to get up to speed on complex real estate matters. We also have an ingrained sense of the deal – which allows us to aggressively defend our clients' interests, both in and out of court.

Our litigators also stay at the forefront of trends in real estate litigation and case law. For example, for more than 35 years one of our partners has penned the New York Law Journal's weekly column on real estate case law in New York State. Another one of our partners authored the book New Jersey Foreclosure Law, a seminal treatise that is regularly used by New Jersey's judges and legal practitioners.
