BETTER NEGOTIATIONS Drive long-term value

A lease is a long-term relationship between a landlord and a tenant. You need a business advisor who understands this when negotiating and executing your lease.

Our real estate attorneys have significant national experience executing timely commercial leasing transactions on behalf of both landlords and tenants across their office, retail, hotel and industrial property portfolios.

Our team represents institutional and entrepreneurial owners of hundreds of commercial properties throughout the country and advises tenants in all major markets, including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Miami. We represent landlords and tenants in numerous “big box” lease transactions and owners and tenants of manufacturing facilities throughout the Midwest.

We Are Known as “Deal Makers,” Not “Deal Breakers”

We put our experience on both sides of the negotiating table to work for you, quickly identifying and evaluating potential risks and laying out appropriate options. Our extensive relationships with key players in the real estate industry help you avoid protracted lease negotiations and help move your deals forward as smoothly and expeditiously as possible.

We economically handle standard leases and lease amendments, as well as sophisticated and complex lease transactions. These include negotiation of significant issues, such as lender subordination, equity participation and joint ventures.
