Laurie A. Stanziale is a partner in the Construction Practice. She represents domestic and international developers and owners, major construction companies, trade contractors, architects, engineers and consultants. As a business partner, she guides clients in all phases of construction law including the preparation and negotiation of:

  • Agreements with neighboring properties for easements, licenses and access
  • Construction and design contracts
  • Insurance policies, financing and leases
  • Project management, development, branding and brokerage agreements
  • Review and negotiation of construction easement and license provisions in zoning lot development agreements
  • Joint venture agreements

Laurie prosecutes and defends construction claims in state and federal courts. She also assists clients in connection with construction defects, payment disputes and construction liens.

Laurie is an active speaker and CLE instructor, and published author. She is an active member of the New York chapter of CREW New York and the Women’s Builders Council.

Her diverse construction and licensing experience includes:

  • Represented a co-op whose neighboring property had to perform Local Law 11 work, requiring protection on the co-op's penthouse terrace and alleyway. The court awarded the penthouse owner a monthly license fee and the owner and the co-op a per diem penalty if the work was not completed by a certain date. The court also awarded all attorney and engineering fees incurred by the co-op and cited Laurie's argument that the statute and a recent Appellate Division case makes no distinction between LL 11 and discretionary work that affects a neighbor.

  • Recently obtained a Temporary Restraining Order ceasing the unlawful underpinning of our client, Sunset Park Terrace I Condominium's building by the neighboring developer.

  • Advising a developer in connection with its demolition of a large existing building to make way to build a new tower slated to be a condominium. We are assisting in negotiating the 21 adjoining property owner agreements.

Prior to joining Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Laurie was a partner at construction boutique firm Greenberg, Trager & Herbst LLP.
