Leasing a Commercial Premises

Need an office for your new business? Already have a lease and have a bunch of questions or concerns? Or maybe it’s renewal time. Any business owner knows that the lease terms can make or break a business so it’s critical you understand what you’re signing up for and the practical effect of those provisions. Let us help you by reviewing the terms of your new lease before you sign or before you renew so that you are in control and negotiate the best outcome for your business.

Perhaps you are a landlord looking to protect your interests without paying an arm and a leg for a new lease to be prepared or renewed. Our packages are outcome based, so we will get the job done no matter how long it takes and you can focus on finding new tenants and your golf swing.
