Commercial leasing is currently one of the most active area of our practice, where the firm generally, but not exclusively, acts as counsel to tenants. We have recently negotiated retail, restaurant, warehouse, industrial and office leases. We have completed lease transactions for many European high-end luxury fashion companies in virtually every significant shopping area, shopping center and outlet center in the United States, and have negotiated architectural and construction agreements and in the resolution of related issues. We help our clients to address their space needs by negotiating leases, extensions and renewals, as well as advising them regarding possible exit strategies and negotiating surrenders, subleases, assignments and commission agreements.

Over the years we have developed substantial experience in the representation of architects and architectural firms at all levels and on all aspects of their practices.
