Leasing and Management

We handle complex leasing matters for clients including developers, property owners, and property management companies. We assist them with office properties that range from small buildings to Class A office parks and other Class A office spaces, regional and power shopping centers, and smaller "strip" centers.

As landlord leasing counsel, we advise clients on all aspects of a property’s operation, including: 

  • Lease negotiations 
  • “Ghost writing” letters including rapid review and turnaround on LOI issues 
  • Tenant disputes and controversies over money and other performance issues 
  • Dealing with neighboring homeowner communities 
  • Local government and utility interactions

We also help tenants review and negotiate commercial property leases, and resolve disputes. Our services for companies include: 

  • Negotiating “last chance” renewal notices 
  • Capping traditional “pass-through” expenses (added monthly fees, including those for landscaping, outdoor lighting, common area maintenance, insurance and real estate taxes) 
  • Establishing less restrictive assignment or sublet rights 
  • Negotiating “buy-out” rights and other strategic early exit options 
  • Gathering and analyzing key lease terms (size in square footage, proposed rent, lease duration, and renewal options) 
  • Developing letters of intent

Additionally, we frequently handle litigation matters for landlord and tenant clients. Underlying issues include: 

  • Landlord construction obligations 
  • General tenant performance issues 
  • Monetary and non-monetary defaults under lease 
  • Common area maintenance 
  • Insurance obligations under lease 
  • Government permitting issues 
  • Exclusive use provisions 
  • Restrictive covenants 
  • Rent escalation clause issues 
  • Evictions 
  • Damages 
  • ADA and environmental issues
