Commercial Leases

At Ortiz & Schick, we have negotiated, drafted, interpreted, and enforced hundreds of leases. Retail leases. Office leases. Industrial leases. While some firms specialize in representing either landlords or tenants, our lawyers have experience representing both. So when we are working on your lease, we know how the other party is thinking. For landlords, we have sent (and for tenants, we have responded to) hundreds of default notices and termination letters.

Our services for landlords include:

  • Assisting with buying, selling or financing commercial property
  • Drafting commercial lease contracts
  • Enforcing lease contracts
  • Negotiating contracts with vendors
  • Performing title, survey, and environmental due diligence

Our services for tenants include:

  • Forming and maintaining LLC’s or corporations
  • Reviewing, revising, and negotiating lease contracts
  • Enforcing lease contracts by drafting demand letters or initiating a lawsuit, if necessary
