We bring value to our clients’ portfolios by effectively drafting and negotiating favorable lease arrangements.

Our leasing team has drafted and negotiated thousands of leases for regional and national clients in office, industrial, manufacturing, energy, agricultural, medical, retail, and restaurant/food service sectors, among many others. Our attorneys work on diverse and sophisticated transactions ranging from long-term build-to-suit headquarters leases to ground leases for new development, to highly specialized commercial space leases for leading-edge tech companies. Our team has also developed a wide variety of form leases and ancillary documents for brokerage and property management services.

Landlords, tenants, and property managers rely on us to help resolve complicated transaction issues that confront sophisticated property owners and space users.

We understand that each deal is unique and requires a diligent and efficient review of the lease terms while also addressing potential tax implications. We conduct any necessary due diligence review and work closely with our clients and colleagues to resolve title, zoning, permitting, and environmental issues that may come up in leasing transactions.
