Our Real Estate Group emphasizes representation of landlords and tenants in commercial leasing and subleasing transactions.
Leasing space is complicated by market conditions that may force change, such as relocation or re-utilization of existing space. Competing economic objectives create legal, economic and psychological tensions that affect the negotiations over key business terms – rental value, tenant improvements, subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreements (SNDAs), environmental risks, leasehold expansion and contraction, options to renew, termination and default provisions, assignment and subletting rights, bankruptcy considerations, and insurance requirements, to name a few. We help integrate business, legal and tax issues into a successful strategy. Our ability to collaborate with our clients, the other party’s counsel, industry experts, and municipalities, distinguishes our practice. If a dispute arises, we work closely with our litigation group in defending or prosecuting the claim to resolution, whether through trial, arbitration or mediation.
