Massimo D’Angelo, a partner at Desiderio, Kaufman & Metz, formerly Adam Leitman Bailey’s law firm, represents a group of owners at a midtown Manhattan condominium named the Atelier who claim the building’s board has turned a blind eye to illegal short-term rentals listed on Airbnb and other websites. D’Angelo’s investigation of the building helped spur a headline-grabbing raid last October, where city inspectors found many violations in units. The raid was seen as a major crackdown on short-term rentals. D’Angelo has continued to represent the owners in a dispute with management.
