From drafting and negotiating commercial space and ground leases, to the creation and development of sophisticated common area maintenance programs, we keep your retail, office or industrial project moving forward.
We focus a significant portion of our practice on commercial leasing. Our depth of experience includes negotiating leases with national “big box” retail tenants, high-end boutique users, chef-driven restaurants and free standing outparcel users. We are active with the International Council of Shopping Centers, and stay at the forefront of today’s ever-changing commercial real estate environment.
