We perform due diligence and counsel clients in environmental, zoning, and permitting matters that arise in leasing transactions. We advise and assist lenders with lease reviews for real-estate financing transactions and handle lease subordination, non-disturbance, and attornment agreements required by lenders in such financing transactions.

Our attorneys address questions, problems, and disputes concerning issues such as rent escalations, common area maintenance charges, and the presence of asbestos, lead paint, mold, and other environmental hazards.
