Corporate Real Estate

Maximizing corporate real estate property portfolios.

Whether leased or owned, costs associated with corporate real estate are often among an organization’s largest expenses. Our corporate real estate attorneys help clients realize value for every dollar invested in their real estate portfolios by delivering innovative, cost-efficient solutions.

Our corporate real estate team is alert to broader issues of corporate portfolios, such as accounting, insurance, corporate approvals, compliance and operations. When funding is required, we bring a deep knowledge of the intricacies of mortgage and construction loans, revolving lines of credit, municipal bonds and sale leasebacks. We also have extensive experience with corporate real estate development incentives, identifying the programs for which each project is eligible and then building the relationships with state and local officials that make them happen.

Our guidance to clients in the corporate real estate sector includes:

  • Campus planning and development
  • Construction
  • Development incentives and tax credits
  • Document analysis and drafting
  • Environmental matters
  • Facilities operations
  • Financing
  • Lease negotiation and administration
  • Purchase and sale transactions
