Steven Velkei and Velkei Law have historically been involved in some key pieces of litigation in the real estate space.  For years, Mr. Velkei represented the largest owner of apartment buildings in the country and, among other things, secured approval, on its behalf, of a massive redevelopment of one of the largest rent control properties in California that had been mired in multiple pieces of litigation for years.  Mr. Velkei represented Sears Roebuck & Co. for many years with regard to its real estate disputes, including the divestiture of its 2,000,000 square foot warehouse facility in Boyle Heights, and also represented a well-known real estate developer in a dispute over one of the largest outdoor malls in Los Angeles.  Mr. Velkei successfully tried to judgment a real estate dispute involving the scope of an exclusive easement that had potentially huge consequences for the adjoining landowners.
