Overview

Our client relationships offer us the privilege of representing both landlords and tenants as primary leasing counsel in commercial lease transactions involving all property types, and we are experienced in addressing the nuances that arise from both perspectives. Our attorneys handle leasing matters involving office properties ranging from small and medium-sized buildings to Class A office buildings and office parks, neighborhood, community and regional shopping centers, restaurants and other single-tenant “net lease” properties, and warehouse facilities. Although not specific to leasing transactions, we are mindful of the inherent time constraints that frequently surround leasing transactions, and have the capacity and commitment to timely accomplish our clients’ business objectives.
