NEW YORK, August 16, 2023 – Leni Cummins, a member of Cozen O’Connor’s Real Estate Practice, has been named an Innovation Award recipient by the New York Law Journal. Cummins was selected by a panel of judges for her creative and inspiring approaches in helping her clients achieve the best results. Cummins will be honored at The 2023 New York Legal Awards on October 4, 2023.
Cummins has extensive experience representing both the sponsor-developers of condominiums and cooperatives, as well as condo, co-op, and community association boards. Her work on behalf of sponsor-developers deeply informs her work on behalf of boards — and vice versa. She routinely advises clients on plans for new construction and condominium conversions and has extensive experience negotiating issues pertaining to construction, development, and statutory compliance.
Cummins has been recognized by The New York Times Magazine as one of the “Top Women Attorneys” in the New York Metro Area, by Crain’s New York Business as a 2021 Notable Woman in Law, and by The National Law Journal as a Real Estate & Construction Trailblazer. Cummins’ honors also include being named a Women Leader in The Law by ALM Media and a 2020 "On the Rise--Top 40 Lawyer" by the American Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division. Cummins serves on the Cooperative & Condominium Law Committee of the New York City Bar. She also chairs three panel discussions organized by the New York City Bar Association each year, addressing current and pertinent topics regarding condominiums, cooperatives, and governance.
