Goulston & Storrs’ GSA leasing attorneys serve the full range of needs of our clients including building owners, developers and lenders interacting with the General Services Administration (GSA) and other federal agencies with independent leasing authority. We help clients prepare responses to formal Requests for Lease Proposals and Leasing Contracts to facilitate leasing commercial space to the GSA. We can handle leases from the simplified lease model through the most complex leases that involve extensive renovations and prospectus level approval. Whether you are responding to a FedBizOpps advertisement or preparing for a succeeding or superseding lease, we can assist you. Additionally, our attorneys understand budget scoring treatment, help resolve leasing disputes, assist with lease amendments, and document, amend and negotiate all GSA and agency lease-related transactions. Finally, we can assist you in financing government leased properties whether with traditional relationship lenders, securitized lenders and even non-traditional debt offerings, such as rule 144A placements.
