Jennifer S. Recine, co-chair of Kasowitz’s Real Estate Litigation group, is one of a small handful of New York’s top women litigators handling high-stakes real estate disputes for large developers and hospitality companies. Recine is a first-chair trial lawyer who leads hotly contested, precedent-setting matters that frequently establish new laws and shape policies in various industries. Her clients include BD Hotels, Crescent Heights, CIM Group, Bruce Eichner/Continuum, Chelsea Hotel, Beverly Hills Unified School District, Maverick Real Estate Partners, Don Peebles/Peebles Corporation, Relevant Group and Maguire Real Estate.

Recine represented Hotel Chelsea’s owner and principals in ending a two-year dispute with New York City’s Housing Preservation Development. She is also lead trial counsel for hedge fund Maverick Real Estate Partners in its ongoing effort to recover default interest from an alleged Ponzi scheme.

Recine obtained her law degree from Georgetown University Law Center.
