Your leasing transactions are often national in scope. You’re dealing with tight time constraints, multiple parties, and sophisticated issues. The lawyers in Alston & Bird’s commercial real estate leasing practice offer creative solutions. We are “dealmakers” not “issue-winners.” We focus on providing the most efficient counsel possible to keep your leasing deal moving forward.
Our team represents a wide range of clients in leasing deals across the country. On the landlord side, we advise developers, pension funds, insurance companies, retailers, property managers, REITs, and other private and public companies; and on the tenant side, we represent all types of space users from accounting firms and law firms to companies in the high-tech arena.
We are experienced in representing parties such as landlords and tenants, sublandlords and subtenants, and assignors and assignees. Our team practices in all real estate arenas, including retail, office, industrial, and mixed-use. Alston & Bird represents one of the nation’s largest privately held developers in all of its industrial leasing on a national basis. We have represented one of the Big Four accounting firms for more than 20 years in its major office leases across the country. We draft and negotiate all types of leases, including space leases, master leases, credit leases, ground leases, subleases, build-to-suit leases, and synthetic leases.
At Alston & Bird, leasing is a core concentration, not merely an adjunct to other real estate disciplines. Our leasing team combines legal experience with business acumen in a flexible way that best serves your needs. We make it our priority to protect your interests while ensuring that your deal closes on time and on budget.
We know that leasing deals are an important part of your business and a major budget item. While many law firms consider leasing ancillary work, we consider it an important part of our practice and have a dedicated leasing team. We listen to you carefully and work to protect your interests, without losing sight of the fact that you need to get your deal done quickly and in a cost-efficient manner.
