The commercial leasing attorneys at Holm & O’Hara LLP stand at the forefront of this arena, offering unparalleled legal assistance throughout the commercial leasing process. Our dedicated team is here to assist existing landlords, investors, real estate developers and commercial tenants in the negotiating, drafting and managing of commercial lease agreements with proficiency and a vast extent of experience.

How Our Commercial Leasing Attorneys Can Help You

Our legal team at Holm & O’Hara LLP thrives on transforming commercial real estate leasing opportunities into tangible successes. With a thorough knowledge of New York’s distinctive commercial leasing market, we serve as your dedicated partners in securing and maintaining a profitable real estate portfolio. From initial concept to term sheet and finalized lease, our real estate attorneys ensure seamless transactions and the safeguarding of your interests.

Commercial Lease Agreements

The lease agreement, whether it is a standard commercial lease or a long-term ground lease, is the bedrock of your commercial property investment. Our NYC commercial real estate attorneys possess a keen eye for analyzing and structuring lease terms while anticipating potential legal issues. Representing landlords and tenants alike, we endeavor to ensure that your commercial leases are foundationally strong whether high-rises or sprawling, multi-use complexes that make up New York’s skyline.

Commercial Lease Drafting and Negotiating

Drafting and negotiating lease agreements is an art as much as a science, with every clause potentially impacting the bottom line. Our real estate lawyers excel in drafting and negotiating various types of leases—including single net leases, double net leases, triple net leases, and gross leases—to meet our client’s business goals. With meticulous attention to every detail, we draft and negotiate terms that strengthen your position, while adhering to the complex regulations of New York real estate law.

Subleasing and Assignments

The commercial leasing landscape is ever-evolving, and flexibility often proves just as valuable as consistency. Our attorneys guide you through the nuances of leasing, subleasing, and lease assignments, providing a strategic advantage in your real estate endeavors. Whether your business is scaling up, diversifying, or transforming to meet new market demands, we handle your legal transactions with the utmost precision to maximize your profitability.

Construction and Improvements

As a business grows, its commercial spaces must evolve. Our legal counsel extends into the domain of construction and tenant improvements, particularly in ground leases where the tenant’s investment in the property is significant, ensuring that lease agreements are comprehensive, foresighted, and flexible enough to accommodate such changes. We serve as your advocates, confirming that improvements are executed within legal parameters, safeguarding your rights, and facilitating smooth implementation of any changes to the leased property.

Lease Disputes and Litigation

Even the best-laid plans can lead to disputes, demanding a swift and strategic response. When conflicts arise, our team at Holm & O’Hara LLP is prepared to protect and defend your interests, whether through skillful negotiation or assertive litigation in the courtroom. We handle a range of lease disputes, from payment conflicts to breaches of lease terms, utilizing our full litigation capabilities to resolve conflicts effectively and efficiently, with a focus on your best outcomes.
