We have worked with licensed real estate brokers in our practice in White Plains, NY who come to us thinking that they are entitled to a commission. In situations where they have worked on a project for several years and then their brokerage agreement expires. We have worked with these brokers making a fact intensive inquiry reviewing the brokerage agreements saying what the facts are and getting the facts and the timelines as to what the broker did to bring about the transaction. There are times we can establish that the broker has facilitated the environment and the transaction occurs and we have been able to take action, which can be litigation and sometimes litigation helps enable the broker to collect his commission.
