Commercial Real Estate

Finding and leasing commercial space can be a complex task depending on the type and size of space you need, your budget, ideal location, and many other factors. A two-person consulting firm looking for a small office space in a suburban neighborhood will face many different issues than a large restaurant or retail store in a popular urban area. While there’s no such thing as a standard lease, all small business owners and managers need to understand the basics of commercial leases, how to cost-effectively work with experienced real estate brokers and attorneys, and how to negotiate with landlords on key terms such as rent, use restrictions, and costs of maintenance and improvements.
