Nixon Peabody handles commercial leasing for tenants, landlords, subtenants, and lenders. Our experience includes ground leases, net leases, space leases, whole property leases, sale-leasebacks, retail percentage rent leases, master leases, bondable leases, and build-to-suit leases. We are also experienced in many special leasing situations, such as those involving health care, biotechnology, airport, seaport, energy, rooftop solar, and telecommunications facilities, as well as federal, state, and local government leases.
In telecommunications, our attorneys have handled numerous leasing transactions for hub sites, data centers, cellular towers, and rooftop antenna facilities.
We advise and assist lenders with lease reviews for real estate financing transactions, and handle lease subordination, nondisturbance, and attornment agreements required by lenders in such financing transactions. Our attorneys address questions, problems, and disputes concerning such issues as rent escalations, common area maintenance charges, and the presence of asbestos, lead paint, mold, and other environmental hazards.
We perform due diligence and counsel clients in environmental, zoning, and permitting matters that arise in leasing transactions.
