KMWB Adds 2 Partners in its Expansion of its DHCR and Loft Practice

Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens, LLP Announces the Addition of Two Partners 

The arrangement will enable the New York City-based real estate law firm to expand its legal capabilities and services offerings to the New York City real estate industry

NEW YORK, NY – April 19, 2021 – Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens, LLP (KMWB), a New York City-based full-service real estate law firm, announced today that, effective as of April 20, 2021, Vladimir Favilukis and Joseph Goldsmith, formerly of Kossoff, PLLC have joined KMWB as partners.  

“It is to our good fortune to add Vlad and Joe to our best-in-class roster of owner-side attorneys in the New York City real estate industry.  Their collective breadth of knowledge in all facets of real estate law: most notably rent regulatory law, loft law, land use law, leasing and general real estate litigation, will only serve to further bolster our ever-growing presence in the industry.  We look forward to working with them both and will do what it takes to ensure that they hit the ground running from day one,” said Nativ Winiarsky, a partner of KMWB.

The addition of Vlad and Joe comes on the heels of the firm’s recent addition of attorneys Jason Frosch, Lisa Faham-Selzer, Kacey Sou, and Kathleen Kelliher — all formerly of attorneys at Borah Goldstein Altschuler Nahins and Goidel, P.C. — the result of which helped KMWB to create the largest loft law practice group in New York City.

“I am excited to be joining KMWB at such an important point of the firm’s history.  KMWB has begun to expand over the past few years, their loft law practice group is second to none and I look forward to jointly providing our clients with the best counsel in the New York City real estate industry,” said Mr. Goldsmith.

“KMWB is certainly a well-respected name when it comes to my primary practice area: the law surrounding multi-family dwellings in New York City, particularly rent regulation;” said Mr. Favilukis.  “I have worked with many of the firm’s attorneys and look forward to the synergies which will be created for our clients by joining forces with them.”

Mr. Goldsmith is admitted to practice law in the State Courts of New York and in the Federal Courts of the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York.  

Mr. Favilukis is admitted to practice in the States of New York and New Jersey, and has been named a Super Lawyer “Rising Star” from 2015 through 2021.
