Our knowledgeable attorneys have successfully handled numerous transactions involving the purchase and sale of various retail properties, including:

We have assisted clients in the acquisition and disposition of retail strip centers with multiple tenants. Our attorneys understand the unique considerations involved in these transactions, such as tenant lease agreements, common area maintenance (CAM) fees, and shared responsibilities among tenants. We provide comprehensive legal support, from due diligence to negotiation and closing, ensuring a smooth and successful transaction.

Shopping Centers

Representing clients in the purchase and sale of small and large shopping centers is one of our core areas of expertise. These properties often feature a diverse mix of anchor tenants, national retailers, and smaller businesses. Our attorneys are well-versed in the complexities of large-scale transactions, including lease negotiations, zoning and land use issues, and financing arrangements. We work diligently to protect our clients’ interests and facilitate the seamless transfer of ownership.

Shopping Malls

Our firm has extensive experience in representing clients in the purchase and sale of shopping malls, including a shopping mall purchase for over $30,000,000.00 in Northern California. Shopping Mall transactions typically encompass a wide range of retail, entertainment, and dining establishments. These transactions involve intricate lease agreements, complex ownership structures, and the coordination of multiple parties. 

Our attorneys have the knowledge and expertise to navigate the legal complexities of shopping mall transactions and ensure that our clients’ interests are protected throughout the process. Our expertise is further enhanced by our firm’s robust commercial leasing practice, where we have represented commercial landlords with lease negotiations with local tenants to large national retail tenants such as: Ross Dress For Less; Planet Fitness; Marshalls; Home Goods; Habit Burger and more.

Car Washes

We understand the unique considerations involved in the purchase and sale of car wash facilities. From evaluating environmental factors and compliance with water regulations to assessing the profitability of the business, our attorneys provide comprehensive legal guidance tailored to the specific needs of car wash transactions. We handle all aspects of the transaction, including drafting purchase agreements, reviewing licenses and permits, and conducting due diligence to ensure a successful and compliant transfer of ownership.

Quick Service Restaurants

Representing clients in the purchase and sale of quick service restaurants requires specialized knowledge and understanding of the unique challenges faced by this industry. Our attorneys have represented clients in transactions involving fast-food chains, franchises, and independent quick service restaurants. We handle all legal aspects, including franchise agreements, lease negotiations, and compliance with health and safety regulations.

Single Tenant Net Leased Retail Properties

Our attorneys also have significant experience in representing clients in the purchase and sale of single tenant net leased retail properties. These properties are typically leased to a single tenant who is responsible for paying rent, property taxes, insurance, and maintenance costs. We understand the unique dynamics of these transactions, including the importance of evaluating lease terms, creditworthiness of tenants, and potential risks and liabilities. Our expertise in this area allows us to provide strategic advice and representation to clients seeking to invest in or divest such properties.

When representing clients in the purchase and sale of single tenant net leased retail properties, we conduct thorough due diligence to assess the financial stability of the tenant, review lease agreements to ensure favorable terms, and address any potential legal issues.
