Crain’s New York Business Recognizes Kara I. Rakowski as a 2023 Notable Woman of Law

Jun 20, 2023

We are delighted to announce that Kara I. Rakowski, Partner and Co-Chair of the Administrative Department, has been recognized on the 2023 Notable Woman of Law list by Crain’s New York Business for her outstanding professional and civic achievements.

Ms. Rakowski has been a valued member of our firm since 1991, having extensive experience in representing property owners in rent regulation matters.  In the previous 18 months, she oversaw the due diligence team for the most significant acquisition of a multifamily housing portfolio in Brooklyn, which resulted in the creation of hundreds of affordable housing units. On behalf of owners, she negotiated penalty-free agreements with the city addressing discrimination claims, which led to the placement of numerous voucher candidates in long-term housing.  She also offers legal counsel to groups involved in the New York City real estate market, including the Real Estate Board of New York and Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP).

Please join us in extending our heartfelt congratulations to Ms. Rakowski for this well-deserved recognition.

Congratulations to Kara Rakowski for being an honoree on the 2023 Notable Women in Law by Crain's New York Business.
