Members of our firm lecture extensively at local, national and international leasing and industry seminars, and many have published articles that address various aspects of development, planning and leasing.

Our representation does not limit itself to national developers. We regularly advise and assist numerous regional and local developers, landlords and property managers in all development aspects of commercial real estate. This includes completion of standard form offers to lease, leases for shopping centres, office buildings, strip malls and warehouses, preparation and review of documents and the interpretation and application of these documents in each possible circumstance.

We also address a variety of commercial leasing issues that affect current business operation and future growth. Our experience spans all aspects relating to the drafting, negotiation and enforcement of commercial leases in shopping centre, office and warehouse developments. Clients requiring this service generally include groups directly affected by leasing issues, including developers, financial institutions, landlords, property managers and tenants.
