Negotiating lease agreements can consume valuable time and financial resources. However, well-executed lease agreements protect business interests and can increase a company’s asset value. The key to success is engaging a commercial lease agreement lawyer who specializes in clearly defining the obligations of each party, as well as the specialized terms of the agreement. Clear communication from the outset makes for a more positive, productive relationship between landlords and tenants over the long term.

McMillan’s Commercial Real Estate Group uses its expertise in commercial leasing to help clients—both landlords and tenants—structure, prepare and negotiate a full range of commercial lease agreements, including industrial, retail, office and ground leases. By preparing template and/or precedent lease documentation, our commercial lease agreement lawyers add value to our clients’ businesses by maximizing efficiencies throughout the process, while mitigating potential risk.

Whether assisting with lease negotiations, advising clients with regards to daily property management issues, developing green building initiatives, drafting sublease or landlord consent documentation, or reviewing estoppel certificates, our retail commercial lease lawyers help clients protect their interests and preserve the landlord/tenant relationship.

Our lawyers help commercial, and business real estate clients lead by providing counsel on site acquisition, assisting with lease negotiations and agreements, structuring property management contracts, structuring sales and leasebacks, designing tenders and advising on auctions.
