Commercial Leasing

Print Expertise

Our Commercial Leasing team has comprehensive expertise across the spectrum of commercial leasing, including retail, office and industrial sectors. Our lawyers regularly act for leading developers, retailers, property and asset management companies, landlords and tenants, and bring extensive industry and practical experience to help clients navigate even the most complex commercial leasing transactions. We work alongside our corporate lawyers on mergers and acquisitions, including significant sale and leaseback transactions, as well as complex ground leases.

Our strategic approach coupled with our exceptional writing skills, allow us to capably assist clients in drafting and negotiating commercial leases and ancillary commercial lease documents, such as non-disturbance agreements, leasehold mortgage agreements, landlord waivers and tenant assistance agreements. Our team’s experience—both individually and collectively—combined with our legal knowledge and business acumen, provides our commercial leasing clients with the additional tools they need to advance their progress and achieve their objectives. We skillfully guide and counsel clients on commercial lease disputes working, when necessary, in conjunction with litigation counsel, whose strong advocacy and negotiation skills can advise and represent clients through all stages of their dispute.

As a testament to the depth of our experience and achievements, Torkin Manes was counsel to two of the top NAIOP leasing transactions in 2023 winning both Lease of the Year, as well as Office Lease of the Year.
