Thinking outside, inside and around the box is something Warren Estis does exceptionally well. His expertise in litigation, combined with a deep understanding of transactions and leasing, has given Mr. Estis unique insight into these areas. He is able to approach complex situations from both the legal and business points of view, and often sees opportunities and potential problems that others overlook.

Mr. Estis has tried numerous cases in various courts, both jury and non-jury, and has argued appeals before the Court of Appeals, Appellate Division, and the Appellate Term. He handles all matters of general commercial litigation, including landlord-tenant disputes, breach of contract, transactional disputes, real estate partnership disputes, condemnation proceedings, mortgage foreclosures, brokerage commission actions, rent strikes, holdover proceedings, ejectment proceedings, loft litigation, owner occupancy actions and co-op/condo disputes. 

In assembling land and buildings for renovation and demolition projects, Mr. Estis is adept at meeting the financial needs of owners and developers with the creative restructuring of loans and relocating and moving tenants.

Mr. Estis' credentials include editor and co-author of the Landlord/Tenant Law and Rent Regulations columns in the New York Law Journal, and the book The New York Rent Regulation Reform Act of 1997. He is also co-author of the Landlord-Tenant chapter in West's multi-volume treatise General Practice in New York. He is a former member of the Housing Advisory Council of the Civil Court of the City of New York and a member of the Supreme and Civil Court Practice Sections of the New York County Lawyers' Association and the Real Property Division of the American Bar Association. Mr. Estis has frequently lectured judges and court attorneys at continuing legal education programs sponsored by the New York State Judicial Institute.
