“The Attorneys More Landlords and Tenants Rely On For Their Commercial Leasing Needs”
Having represented commercial landlords and tenants for nearly two decades we are familiar with the specific needs of commercial landlords and tenants. Our landlord representation attorneys and real estate attorneys understand how to structure and draft a commercial leases agreement that meets the needs and objectives of our clients with an eye towards minimizing our client’s liability in any lease transaction.
- Landlords are often perceived as being at an advantage in commercial lease negotiations. However, landlords have many reasons to be careful before entering into lease agreements, especially long-term lease agreements with potentially risky tenants.
- Tenants are often led to believe that the terms of commercial leases are non-negotiable. In fact, with the assistance of an experienced lawyer, it is often possible for commercial tenants to negotiate more favorable lease terms.
