Adam Meyers Handles Claims Against Landlords

A landlord-tenant dispute handled by Skadden Fellow Adam Meyers of Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A was featured in an article by New York's WPIX-TV ("Did Two Brooklyn Landlords Ruin Their OWN Building Just to Evict Tenants?" Jan. 15). Tenants in Greenpoint claim their landlords destroyed their own building with the intention of forcing the tenants out of their long-standing rent-stabilized leases so they can collect higher rents from new renters. "Unfortunately, landlords in these rapidly gentrifying areas have been resorting to these aggressive tactics more and more as the financial upside to displacing rent-stabilized tenants and converting units to market rate has become so great," Adam said.
