Not only is leasing a highly specialized legal discipline but it is the foundation for income-producing real estate. Our Real Estate Group lawyers help clients negotiate and draft effective leases, understanding the document’s many significant implications including financing, taxation, bankruptcy, insurance and property valuation. With every lease, our goal is to help clients derive the lease’s full benefits – and avoid unintended liability or other adverse consequences.
We act as exclusive leasing counsel for a host of property owners, developers and tenants on a national basis for all property types. In particular, we:
- Counsel lessees of real estate (including direct users, franchisers, franchisees and developers) on matters involving lease negotiation, expense sharing, equipment leasing, use restrictions, due diligence and similar matters.
- Advise owners of a wide range of income-producing property types on matters involving leasehold issues, building operation, building management, regulatory matters, the provision of ancillary services, environmental condition and related issues.
