Real solutions for landlords and tenants

Landlords - Our team tailors leases for entities owning or managing industrial, commercial, retail and mixed-use spaces (both multi-tenant and single tenant), as well as for unique properties such as airports, sporting arenas, ferry terminals and convention centres. With our experienced pragmatism behind you, we ensure your lease contains the appropriate:

  • guarantees, indemnities and provisions regarding security deposits, security interests and letters of credit to protect you in the event of damage or loss, or against tenants who are not creditworthy;
  • provisions to protect you from environmental liability,, and repair and maintenance disputes; and
  • provisions to clarify how tenants may use your property, such as exclusivity, signage, access and parking provisions.

Tenants - We regularly act for major office tenants, hotel and restaurant chains, retailers, government entities and consulates who require office, commercial, retail or industrial space. Scrutinizing the terms of your lease, we provide you with the security and flexibility to suit your unique requirements. Our team protects you from unreasonable landlord demands, verifying you understand exactly what your obligations are from the outset. 

From lease negotiation to termination - our comprehensive counsel has you covered.
