Landlords and tenants involved in corporate real estate transactions need an experienced partner to assist in drafting and negotiating leases and related documents. Dickinson Wright provides expert assistance on leasing transactions ranging from simple triple net leases to more complicated build-to-suit, ground leases, or sale-leaseback transactions. We have particularly strong experience representing large corporate property owners with respect to leasing operations on a national basis.

Our regular involvement in the activities of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL), and various bar and industry organizations help to keep us on top of the latest trends, enabling us to provide fast, efficient and cost-effective leasing services for local, regional and national projects.

As a further reflection of our expertise in this area, and our commitment to outstanding communication with our clients, we have developed proprietary transaction management and document automation software that permits us to draft and revise leases and supporting checklists and correspondence exceptionally quickly, and allows our client to track the status of negotiations on an up-to-the-moment basis.

Some of the areas of expertise within the leasing practice include: 
  • Drafting and negotiating leases for all property types, including: single and multi-tenant buildings, shopping center and free standing retail facilities; commercial, office, industrial, warehouse, arena and mixed-use properties.
  • Drafting and reviewing ancillary documents, such as Reciprocal Easement and Operating Agreements (REAs), Subordination, Nondisturbance and Attornment Agreements (SNDAs), and Estoppel Letters.
  • Drafting green leases including: build-to-suit, retail and office leases.
