Edmund A. Allcock, Esq., is a partner at the law firm of Marcus, Errico, Emmer &, Brooks, P.C. Allcock has blended his extensive knowledge of condominium law into an active multistate condominium litigation practice. In addition to conducting numerous trials on behalf of condominium associations, Allcock has the unique distinction of having appeared on condominium related matters in the Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island Supreme Courts. Allcock's work has led him to be named a Massachusetts and New England Superlawyer for six consecutive years. Allcocks condominium litigation practice ranges from condominium development rights and phasing cases, enforcement of condominium covenants and rules, construction defects, land use and zoning issues, contract disputes, matters of statutory interpretation, easement and real property rights claims (including view easements), fiduciary claims, and insurance defense of condominium boards.
