If you're a tenant or a landlord, we focus first on your needs, whether you are a tenant leasing office, retail, restaurant or industrial space, or a landlord negotiating a lease with a tenant. Our firm represents clients in all types of leasing matters, and we can advise you in the preparation, negotiation and review of letters of intent, early entry letters, space leases, ground leases, guarantees, subleases, assignments, licenses, SNDA's, leasehold financing, lease modifications or terminations, or lease disputes. Your lease is more - much more - than just a rent payment, and we help clients understand the wide range of issues that they may face throughout the entire life of that lease.
If you are responsible for commercial leasing at your firm or company, we can give you the perspective and advice you need to lease and build out your locations, prepare entrance and exit strategies from a location, dispose of leasehold liabilities, manage your firm's portfolio of leases, prepare for an acquisition, or even work out disputes arising from leases with your tenants or landlord. Because we've been in your shoes, we are available not only as counsel, but as a business resource for you at every stage of the lease's life cycle - whether you're signing a lease, dealing with issues at current locations, creating pro-formas, preparing to relocate to new space, or handling the those not-so-obvious issues that come up with turnovers of space at the end of a lease term.
