Sklar Kirsh’s real estate attorneys handle a wide range of commercial leasing matters representing both landlords and tenants.  Our experience includes commercial lease transactions for office buildings, multi-unit tenant buildings, restaurants, shopping centers, mixed-use buildings and warehouses.

The commercial leasing practice at Sklar Kirsh combines an understanding of regional real estate markets, economic conditions and business needs with the practical ability to help clients define and achieve their objectives in a given transaction. We work with clients to identify and take advantage of the market conditions that support the business goals of our clients. At the same time, we look beyond the details of the immediate lease agreement to help clients plan for risk, expansion, assignment, renewal, adjustment and other considerations that can make a given set of lease terms right for their situation.

Our client list includes developers, insurance companies, pension funds, REITs, private investment companies and real estate development firms engaging in every type of office, retail and industrial lease transaction.

With this knowledge and practical experience, our attorneys successfully address the many complex details in lease transactions while crafting solutions that support the overall business objectives of our clients.
