REAL ESTATE COMMERCIAL LEASING

Our Real Estate practice group represents both landlord and tenant clients across the country in virtually every type of commercial lease matter, including office, retail, commercial, manufacturing, industrial and ground lease transactions. Our real estate attorneys have developed long-term relationships with several national retail brands, international corporations, institutional investors, and all types of entrepreneurial and smaller business ventures, and we regularly assist with their leasing needs.

 

We negotiated 17 sale/leaseback transactions with an asset value exceeding $1.2 billion.

We negotiated the lease agreement for a client's new headquarters facility. This property was environmentally contaminated, and there were numerous environmental and risk management concerns, particularly given the applicable New Jersey environmental laws.

We represented a national retailer as tenant in the negotiation of a lease for retail space in a 675,000-square-foot shopping center, which is currently under construction. This deal entailed significant negotiation related to special rights of termination and opening and ongoing co-tenancy requirements in light of the general downturn in the retail sales industry.

Our group represented the tenant in a new one-million-square-foot urban development covering 15 acres in Omaha, Nebraska. The project is part of a $300 million mixed-use development including luxury residences, fine and casual dining, entertainment, shopping and personal services.

Our department handles all office leasing for a multinational corporation which includes the drafting and negotiation of 1,000- to 80,000-square-foot leases, subleases, licenses and residential leases for temporary company visitors.

We serve as counsel to a national retail company and handle all aspects of lease drafting and negotiation for 3,000- to 10,000-square-foot retail shopping center leases.

Our firm handles the lease negotiations for a national furniture company and regularly drafts leases for large stand-alone retail centers.

We regularly handle industrial and commercial leases from 10,000 to 100,000 square feet on a national basis.
