I focus my practice on the acquisition, leasing and disposition of commercial real estate. Working on behalf of landlord entities, I have completed projects involving several million square feet of retail space. I work with clients in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Germany, England, China and Israel in relation to acquisition, disposition and leasing of retail, residential, industrial and office properties. I also provide counsel on foreign and domestic formation issues.
I lecture at conferences on lease negotiation strategies and have authored a chapter on Illinois law in the State-By-State Guide to Commercial Real Estate Leases.
E-commerce continues to expand, forcing retail landlords and tenants to adjust to an evolving landscape. Experiential retail—that which cannot be purchased online—is likely to play a material role in shopping centers for many years to come. Additionally, increased foot traffic, though not necessarily produced from traditional retail sources, will be embraced by existing tenants, which is a departure from traditional thinking.
