Commercial Leasing

Allen Matkins has unparalleled experience in representing the interests of major institutional office landlords and tenants in leasing transactions.

Our experience in representing sophisticated landlords and tenants allows us to quickly analyze and resolve issues commonly found in office leases. Our work includes the preparation, negotiation and finalization of lease documentation, including: 

  • Construction and architects’ agreements 
  • Tenant improvement work letters 
  • CC&Rs involving multi-building projects 
  • Credit enhancement agreements

We also have particular expertise in structuring tenant lease workouts and in negotiating and resolving tenant disputes (including common area maintenance charge disputes and fair market rental value disputes).

In addition to our legal expertise, we also consult extensively on the business and quasi-business terms on which lease proposals, letters of intent, and leases are ultimately based. Our deep expertise and experience in this area and our knowledge of marketplace dynamics allows us structure the best terms and conditions for our clients.
