Commercial Leasing

As businesses grow or downsize, their needs for space change. Landlords and tenants, therefore, often seek our counsel in leasing office, warehouse, industrial and retail space.

We focus on identifying important issues related to each client's particular needs and goals. Clients benefit when we ensure that these issues are identified and addressed in discussions about a potential lease and, ultimately, when a lease is drawn up.
