Biography

Erik represents age-restricted communities, condominium and homeowners’ associations, bankruptcy creditors and businesses undergoing Chapter 11 reorganization.

•As a bankruptcy attorney, Erik has worked with community associations and other creditors to:

•Ensure they receive the maximum amounts recoverable once an owner/debtor declares bankruptcy
• Receive payment for assessments accruing while the debtor is in bankruptcy.

He has been successful in having bankruptcy stays lifted so that associations could pursue prosecution of covenant and architectural violations that had been put on hold due to the bankruptcy process. Erik has also represented businesses through Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. In one case a developer client avoided the foreclosure of its lots and was successfully restructured so that it could continue to operate, pay off creditors, and continue as a viable concern.

In representing age-restricted communities, condominium and homeowners’ associations, Erik has handled:

•Turnover from declarant control;
• Amendment of governing documents;
• Covenant enforcement cases;
• Establishing and enforcing rules for use of common recreational facilitiesand contracting for use of recreational facilities by other organizations;
• Easement issues, particularly landscape and open space easements;
• Tree removal/protection issues;
• Claims of discrimination under the ADA and the Fair Housing Act;
• Opposing zoning matters on adjacent properties;
• Highly volatile Board and annual meetings;
