Leasing

We represent and advise both landlords and tenants on the full spectrum of commercial leasing transactions, including preparing, negotiating and reviewing office, ground, industrial and retail leases, as well as other types of occupancy agreements relating to land, buildings and space.  We also represent clients on more specialized leases such as wind farm leases, airport ground leases, air rights leases, build-to-suit leases for specialized manufacturing facilities and ground leases with complex accompanying reciprocal easement structures.  We assist clients in preparing lease forms, property management agreements, early access and indemnification agreements, lease termination and settlement agreements, telecommunication agreements, brokerage agreements and requests for proposals for building services and agreements for building services, such as concierge agreements.  We represent our clients in forcible entry and detainer actions and other lease disputes, including those that entail litigation and those that are settled outside of court.  Our wealth of experience representing both landlords and tenants enables us to review and prepare documents efficiently, identify real-world issues and negotiate creative solutions.
