Leasing & Property Management

Leasing

We have an experienced, sophisticated and diverse leasing practice representing a broad cross-section of clients in all aspects of lease transactions, which includes attorneys who are active members of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC). Our national leasing practice includes the structuring, negotiating and drafting of ground, hotel/resorts, office, industrial, and retail lease transactions.  We take pride in representing our clients in all aspects of the leasing process, including serving our clients’ interests during the letter of intent stages, the leasing and construction stages, and the post-lease execution stages (i.e., amendments and termination agreements). 

On behalf of landlords, we have experience in negotiating retail leases for lifestyle shopping centers, power centers and outlot developments such as restaurants and convenience/fuel stores.  We assist landlords in the creation and negotiation of leases for office space and help structure cost recovery mechanisms and other net lease cost recoveries.  We also represent industrial landlords, whether it is the lease of warehouse space or manufacturing space. 

For tenants on the retail side, we represent national and regional retail tenants on their leasing needs nationwide.  We also have experience serving our tenant clients in the negotiation of complex, build-to-suit leases.  Our representation of tenants includes every aspect of the leasing transaction important to a tenant, whether negotiating lease provisions related to tenant build-out and allowances, assignment and subletting, common area maintenance pass-through protections, default provisions, co-tenancies, exclusives, and radius restrictions. 

Property Management

On behalf of property managers and owners, our team assists in the enforcement of remedies, including eviction, rent collection and general compliance with lease provisions. We also assist property owners with the ongoing operating challenges faced when managing leased property.
