$22.5M Client Savings

A Corporate Real Estate case study.

Client Success


Our client agreed to a 15-year lease term for a 350K square-foot building, which was in a key location for their business. During the build-to-suit lease negotiations, we introduced and negotiated a one-time right to reduce the premises by 100K square feet, without penalty, in year 10 of the lease term, even though such a right seemed unnecessary at that time. When business needs changed and the right was exercised, this saved the client a total of $22.5M ($4.5M each year for 5 years).

Our Difference

Markets change. Strategies and operations adjust. And what seems solid today might turn out to be more temporary than planned. That’s why our experienced team negotiates the best deal today, with an eye for unexpected changes throughout the life of the lease…in this case, a $22.5M protection our team was able to identify due to extensive experience, unique expertise and a thorough exploration of the contract details.
