Henry M. Hocherman
Mr. Hocherman, a founding partner of HTW, retired from the practice of law in April of 2011. For decades he was an accomplished and highly-regarded land use lawyer who obtained approvals for dozens of commercial, residential and not-for-profit projects. He represented the victorious developer in the landmark Court of Appeals case, Bayswater Realty & Capital Corp. v. Planning Board of the Town of Lewisboro, 76 N.Y.2d 460, 560 N.Y.S.2d 623 (1990), which refined the law regarding the imposition of recreation fees as a condition to approval of residential subdivisions. He also had an extensive transactional real estate practice.
Mr. Hocherman graduated from The Johns Hopkins University in 1968, and from Columbia Law School in 1971, where he was elected a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and a Forsythe Wickes Fellow.
