Service Difference

Our team of dedicated professionals offers a unique value proposition in the nationwide marketplace for leasing assistance. The Office & Industrial Leasing Group is part of one of the most longstanding, diverse and reputable real estate practices in the country, and we do a particularly high volume of leasing work. In addition, our group includes some of the country’s most pre-eminent real estate financing attorneys who can solve financing issues pertinent to certain types of leasing.

We also have a team of environmental, insurance, regulatory, tax and trial lawyers that help us to solve every kind of problem associated with the leasing of any type of property, as well as a well-established network of reliable local counsel, engineers, insurance experts and government contacts to help us solve thorny problems, such as those posed by environmental hazards, including indoor air issues.

Because of our incredibly broad experience, we not only possess the requisite legal knowledge pertinent to leasing, we have local and regional knowledge of the marketplace with respect to pricing, guarantees, and all of the key covenants in a deal.

Our high volume of work also thrives on a well-developed process for timely and efficient leasing activity, which is supervised at by senior attorneys, but partly carried out by seasoned paralegals that perform due diligence work and necessary documentation at much lower costs. Clients love that we offer creative and competitive pricing because of this efficiency.

Our legal team also includes lawyers who have served in leadership positions in management or on boards and committees of relevant industry organizations, such as the Real Estate Board of New York and the Urban Land Institute, and many of our lawyers are members of the peer-selected American College of Real Estate Lawyers.

Our clients especially love that we have an inbred cultural emphasis on responsive, efficient service and results. Because of our unusual low leverage business model, we give partner-level attention to every matter, handling it with fewer lawyers than most firms would while remaining more accessible to our clients when needed.

Our lawyers are also keenly aware of the business context in which legal decisions must be made, and they make special efforts to understand the unique business and industry background of each client. As a result, the advice we offer is always consistent with and supportive of the client’s larger business objectives.

Of utmost importance to our clients, we have a well-earned reputation for deal making, and not deal-killing. We take a business-oriented approach to solving problems, armed with the requisite knowledge of related legal risks and opportunities. Our attorneys know how to develop creative win-win solutions when dealing with another party, and we conduct ourselves as formidable but reasonable advocates with a dedication to and reputation for ethical conduct and professionalism.

We understand and greatly appreciate that clients are entrusting their life’s work to us when they turn to us for help, and we take that very seriously. In fact, the very structure of our firm is client-centric, providing incentives for us to work collaboratively, sharing information and ideas in order to support our clients to the fullest while discouraging any attitudes or behaviors that interfere with the rendering of superior client service.
