Even as much of the retail world embraces the opportunities of the digital marketplace, real estate remains a leading driver of retail success and the main focus of our retail practice.

Representing tenants, property owners, franchisors and franchisees, we serve both as trusted counsel and advisors. Our full-spectrum knowledge and in-house experience give us a comprehensive view of the industry, allowing us to deliver practical and strategic advice that includes:

  • Business formation
  • Commercial contracts and transactions
  • Corporate business matters
  • Land use and zoning
  • Leasing
  • Local, federal and state incentives
  • Real estate insurance trusts (REITs)
  • Employee benefits and executive compensation
  • Labor and employment
  • Advertising clearance and compliance
  • Alcohol licensing
  • Consumer law defense

Our team serves a mix of retail tenants and developers, ranging from big-box stores to startups. Decades of experience in the retail space equip us with an intimate understanding of project scoping. We raise the right questions clients should be asking to guide negotiations, enabling clients to feel confident and secure in their contracts, deals and provisions.

We believe in transparency, laying out clear expectations from the start of any deal. This approach is woven into our counsel to help clients avoid costly issues and achieve the greatest possible business advantage.
