New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
In the field of real estate law and real estate dispute resolution, no name is better-known than Edward Schiff. After 55 years of high-level practice in real estate, banking, construction and contract law, Schiff has built a peerless reputation as one of the great legal minds in the country. His announcement of membership in both leading ADR web portals Mediation.com and Arbitration.com was greeted with tremendous excitement in both the real estate and legal communities.
“Part of being a good attorney or mediator for your clients is knowing what you offer,” said Ed of the announcement. “Over the course of five and a half decades, I’ve gained experience you simply can’t find anywhere else. I’ve acted as attorney for more than 500 cooperative and condominium buildings in the toughest real estate market in the world, and I was the attorney for the first condo conversion in the United States in 1965. That’s what I bring to the table for all of my clients, whether in the courtroom, in a contract negotiation, or in dispute resolution.”
A graduate of Brooklyn Law School, Ed is widely considered an authority in the field of real estate law and dispute resolution. He is also a qualified mediator and arbitrator in conflicts relating to real estate and construction matters, and has lectured frequently at universities such as Columbia, Fairleigh Dickinson, and New York University. He’s contributed columns to publications such as Real Estate Weekly, Professional Investor, and The New York Times. His experience and legal scholarship has allowed him to appear as an expert witness before the New York State Legislature and Congress on real estate issues.
