Morrison Cohen LLP Launches Valuation Disputes Practice Group

February 9, 2017 – Morrison Cohen LLP today announced the launch of its new Valuation Disputes Practice Group, which will focus on real estate valuation disputes, particularly “rent reset” arbitrations.

“Real estate valuation disputes are a highly specialized area of practice in which Morrison Cohen attorneys have extensive experience. The Valuation Disputes Practice Group is perfectly suited to our business model, which focuses on providing sophisticated advice from senior attorneys, at rational billing rates,” said Morrison Cohen Managing Partner David Scherl.

Chaired by Brett Dockwell, the Valuation Disputes Practice Group brings together attorneys from the Firm’s Real Estate and Business Litigation Departments who have negotiated, arbitrated and litigated valuation disputes involving all types of commercial real estate, including land, retail space, office space, hotels and multi-family residential buildings.  Morrison Cohen’s attorneys have strong ties in the appraisal community, enabling them to provide practical and sophisticated guidance on rent renewals for ground leases and space leases, use-and-occupancy disputes, IRS tax appeals, business dissolutions and other valuation-related matters.

“This new group will help solidify the Firm as a market leader in this specialized area of practice at a time when surging property values have led to an increasing number of disputes between landlords and tenants of significant commercial leases,” said Mary E. Flynn, Co-Chair of Business Litigation and Deputy Managing Partner-Operations.  Click here for press release.
