Retail and commercial leasing have been a major part of Einbinder & Dunn's commercial real estate practice since the founding partners first joined together in 1990. In the two decades since, our New York law firm has handled virtually every type of retail and commercial leasing need and issue faced by commercial property owners, managers, brokers and tenants.
Our clients include landlords and tenants in the Greater New York metropolitan area, including the five boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island, as well as nationwide.
We represent a broad spectrum of property owners and retailers, running the gamut from small business owners operating out of storefronts to chain store tenants in enclosed malls, shopping centers and warehouses; retail operators in urban and suburban settings; and building owners throughout the city.
We understand that each client has unique concerns and we tailor the counsel we provide to maximize the value of our legal representation. Depending on your needs, we can structure, draft and negotiate anchor leases, in-line leases, ground leases, triple net leases, subleases, master leases and outparcel leases, as well as lease amendments and other agreements incident to the retail leasing process.
Our retail and commercial work is highly diverse, including the matters listed below:
- Cinema or movie theater leases: Our clients include the largest motion picture theater chain in the country. We have serviced the chain's needs in numerous states throughout the U.S.
- Restaurant leases: We have represented restaurant owners, franchisors and franchisees in restaurant leases and are familiar with the complicated financial transactions that are often involved in leases of that nature.
- Retail store leases: From local boutiques to nationwide retail franchises, our law firm negotiates, drafts and reviews retail leases. We also have the capacity to handle all stages of the shopping center development process, including drafting and review of anchor and major store leases.
- Sale/Leasebacks: An attractive alternative to real estate financing is for a property owner/operator to sell the property to an investor, then lease it back at attractive rates.
Lease-Related Real Estate Litigation
Our New York law firm has also handled complicated lease-related real estate litigation, representing landlords and tenants in disputes related to lease terms and property use. Each situation is unique; many different lease provisions can potentially lead to litigation.
Our clients are often engaged in disputes over the financial terms of a lease or other provisions that have a significant financial impact on property owners and commercial tenants. These include provisions relating to rent or additional rent, construction, permitted uses, hazardous materials and insurance coverage, or assignment and sublet provisions.
Our experience as commercial and retail leasing attorneys helps us to advise our franchisor and franchisee clients as to leases that affect their franchised businesses.
