Ganfer Shore Leeds & Zauderer has been approved by the major title insurance carriers in New York State to handle title insurance litigation representing both the companies and their insured in a broad range of matters. Our practice in this area is performed by both our litigators and our transactional real estate attorneys, including an attorney who was formerly an assistant major claims counsel at a prominent title insurer.
