PRACTICE
Retail Leasing

EXPERIENCE
Retail Leasing  I have negotiated and drafted hundreds of leases and subleases in regional malls, strip centers, outlet malls, multi-use properties (such as hotels, condominiums and hospitals) and office buildings for national and regional retail clients such as:

adidas America
Anchor Blue
Baja Fresh
Cepia Dermotique
Columbia Sportswear
Eastern Mountain Sports
Leviís by Most
Miekoís Fitness
Millers Outpost
Oakley
OfficeMax
Restaurants Unlimited
ROAD
Starbucks Coffee Company
Zebraclub

Mergers/Acquisitions  I counsel retailers on leasing issues for the sale and acquisition of retail stores, including drafting and negotiating the assignment and amendment documentation and coordinating due diligence. I have also negotiated and drafted purchase and sale agreements for the purchase of real property.

Operations Issues  I assist retailers with various operational issues, such as facilitating store closures, negotiating and drafting early termination agreements, resolving disputes with landlords, collecting tenant improvement allowances from landlords, title review and title insurance, and reviewing or drafting estoppel certificates, landlord work letters, subordination and nondisturbance agreements, lease guaranties, and consents. I also help retail clients assess potential exposure from other senior documents, such as ground leases, reciprocal easement agreements, declarations of covenants, conditions, and restrictions, and other restrictions on property, and prepare consents and other documents in connection therewith.
