Bleakley Platt Partner Jim Glatthaar Speaks at Council of New York Cooperatives & Condominiums

March 2017

Jim Glatthaar, a member of the Cooperatives and Condominium practice, was invited to speak at an evening program of the Council of New York Cooperatives & Condominiums on March 8th. His presentation focused on what happens when a cooperative finds itself with one or more dissidents on the board whose interests are not aligned with either the board or other owners.

Topics covered included the characteristics of a good board, why dissidents run for board positions, why they are sometimes elected to the board, the impact dissidents can have on a co-operative or condominium board and the board’s options when dealing with a dissident or rogue board member.
