Bringing Value to Our Clients
Leasing is an important part of our practice—a core concentration, not merely adjunct to other real estate disciplines. Alston & Bird’s leasing team combines legal experience with business acumen in a flexible way that best serves the needs of our clients. From the smallest sublease to the office lease likely to be named “deal of the year,” our team approaches each transaction with attention to the interests, needs and goals of our clients. We are attentive to protecting the interests of our client, without losing sight of the fact that making a deal is our client’s objective. We make deals happen for our clients.
