Asbestos with Karen Ward


  Twice a month, we invite a New York co-op or condo board director to ask a legal question, and we host a panel of attorneys who address it. This time, Karen Ward, a board director of a 67-unit co-op in Queens, is facing an asbestos problem. The board president of her co-op had hired a contractor to remove asbestos in their meeting room and a tenant’s apartment. The contractor was not licensed to do this type of work, and the proper disposal protocols were not followed. The building is now facing fines and penalties.

This episode, our panel of attorneys includes:
Geoffrey Mazel, Hankin & Mazel
Steven Anderson, Anderson & Ochs
Jeffrey Diamond, Marcus Rosenberg & Diamond
