Live Webinar
9:00am – 1:00pm

Christine F. Li and Robert J. Flanagan III, Co-Chairs of the Community Association Practice Group, will be on the faculty for a live webinar on “Fundamentals of Community Association Law,” to be presented on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 from 9:00am – 1:00pm by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education (NJICLE) in cooperation with the NJSBA Real Property Trust and Estate Law Section and the New Jersey Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI-NJ).

Ms. Li is the organizer of this popular program. She will introduce and moderate a half-day panel discussion related to the representation of community associations. The program will build on the fundamentals of the practice, with a discussion of current issues and problems to be confronted when counselling associations. The program will offer legal resources to associations and boards and their legal counsel and will also focus on the collaborative effort of other professionals, such as managing agents, accountants, and engineers.

Mr. Flanagan will deliver a presentation on the topic of Delinquent Owners and Collections. The pandemic has left associations with limited recourse against delinquent owners. The increase of unemployment filings and the impact the pandemic has had on the courts have forced associations to consider how best to fulfil their obligation to pursue owners for payment of assessments and to fund association operations. The session will evaluate the options of associations, such as filing liens, and obtaining and executing on judgments, as well as the unique obstacles created by mortgage foreclosures, the abandonment of homes, and the bankruptcy filings of owners.

Other topics to be addressed include:

Ms. Li is a partner in the firm’s Real Estate Department and Chair of the Planned Real Estate Practice Group.  She focuses her practice in real estate, with a concentration in planned real estate development law and condominium law.  

Mr. Flanagan is a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department, where his work encompasses all aspects of both state and federal civil and criminal litigation pre-trial, trial, and appellate practice. He serves as general counsel to a number of condominium and homeowners associations.
