More than any other practice area, The Flateman Rothman Law Firm specializes in retail leasing.We are well-known in the shopping center industry, and our relationships with our counterparts – built on our experience working through the issues together, as well as our participation in the International Council of Shopping Centers – help ensure swift and harmonious lease negotiations.We are specialists on both sides of the table – knowing what issues are vital to each of Landlord and Tenant, and the extent to which each party is willing to give.
Our niche and reputation in retail leasing is well known and well respected, and, as a result, we are sought out to participate in related matters, such as acquisitions and dispositions of retail chains, where we have advised on the assignment provisions and requirements of each lease and administered the notification and consent processes as pertains to each landlord.
In addition to retail leasing, we represent tenants and landlords of restaurant, office, industrial and other commercial properties, and have negotiated the leases for the flagship and headquarter offices of a number of our retail clients. Also, we draft and negotiate real estate purchase and sale agreements, handle closings for both commercial and residential properties and help clients navigate the 1031 exchange process.
Although our concentration is in real estate, underlying everything we do is a focus on negotiating and documenting commercial transactions in an incisive, practical and cost-efficient manner, with a focus on the unique business considerations of every deal; and in so doing, we can offer clients a wide range of legal services to satisfy a variety of business needs – from real estate leasing/sale transactions to asset-purchase, operating and partnership agreements. Our boutique-like expertise and approach are complemented by the resources available to us through our affiliate, Hinman, Howard & Kattell, LLP, a 50+-attorney firm based in upstate New York with considerable real estate and commercial expertise and capability.
