Commercial Real Estate Law

Commercial Leases

Whether you are a new company or a long-standing venture, signing a commercial lease is one of the biggest financial commitments your business will make. Given the long-term nature of commercial leases, it is critical to implement accurate and proper language to protect your interests in order to avoid unfavorable binding terms in the everyday running of your business and in a court of law.

Having experienced and knowledgeable attorneys can help you and your business avoid pitfalls that would seriously devastate the future of your business. We help both landlords and tenants in the negotiation of terms and lease construction. We represent parties in franchise, retail, and industrial leasing transactions for shopping center leases, land leases, office space leases, and ground leases. We also aid clients in constructing assignments, subleases, amendments, rent abatements, and license agreements.

It is important to remember that a commercial lease should not look like a foreign language. Complicated and intimidating provisions should be made into simple, easy to understand, and easy to interpret language that you use to run your business with ease. For your commercial lease negotiation, construction, and interpretation, call us to schedule a consultation.


Landlord/tenant disputes often involve complex state property laws where notices must be timely met and conform to statutory requirements. Because these state laws can be complex and detailed, it is important to obtain advice from attorneys who have experience in this area to clearly explain your rights and work diligently to resolve or minimalize the extent of the issues involved.

Whether you are a tenant or landlord, we can assist you in any eviction, notice, first right of refusal, contract interpretation, and lease option dispute that comes your way. By hiring attorneys who can understand your dilemma and give you personalized attention, you are one step closer to the solution. We are prepared to deliver experience and attention to your matter and solve your landlord/tenant problems.

Mortgage Foreclosure

There are many ways to stop a foreclosure or reduce the ramifications. You may have thought about contacting an attorney, but have delayed the process. The key to an adequate defense is to retain an attorney early in the process, long before the auction date is set. There are ways to stop the foreclosure proceeding if any of the following apply to your circumstance:

  • The lender does not have all the proper documents to prove he is legally entitled to foreclose, typically a relevant issue when the note has been sold and re-sold.
  • The lender does not have a proper calculation of mortgage arrears, costs, and fees including escrow amounts and interest rates.
  • The lender has not provided adequate notice of default.
  • The lender has not taken all required steps to foreclose on your property properly.
  • Defenses under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) exist in your circumstance.

Most times, clients do not know any of the above-mentioned defenses actually applies to their situation.
