Commercial development and leasing

Eversheds Sutherland’s commercial development and leasing team focuses on the most important part of a deal: fulfilling your business objectives. We also understand the challenges you face in taking a deal from conceptualization to completion. Whatever your needs and wherever you operate, our lawyers are on hand to help you achieve your goals.

Experienced commercial development and leasing lawyers

We support deals including:

  • land assembly
  • letters of intent
  • purchase and sale agreements
  • planning and permits
  • joint venture formations
  • acquisition and development financing
  • project completion
  • leasing and sales to users
  • permanent finance
  • disposition

We regularly represent international landlords and tenants in virtually every kind of lease activity including retail, office, industrial, distribution and data centers. Our team has extensive experience in technical legal concepts such as indemnities, waivers of subrogation, subordination provisions, exclusive use provisions, insurance provisions, fire, casualty and condemnation provisions and provisions regarding the assumption of takeover of existing leases. However, we focus on the truly important financial provisions such as rent, build-out allowances, work letters, use provisions, assignment and subletting.

Successful deals require a team approach. At Eversheds Sutherland, we view ourselves as creative and cost-effective problem-solvers and deal-makers. We also see it as our responsibility to implement your strategy. Our development and leasing work brings together experienced practitioners from our construction, environmental, planning and tax teams, who work closely with our real estate lawyers on projects across all asset classes.
