Liskow represents landlords, tenants and subtenants (including owners, developers, ground tenants, property management companies, and other businesses and individuals) in connection with the leasing of commercial and industrial real property, such as office buildings, shopping centers, warehouses, storage facilities, logistics centers, hotels, stand-alone restaurants, other retail properties, and raw land.
We provide guidance to our clients and their teams throughout the leasing process, including preliminary term sheet negotiations; title review and related due diligence; environmental due diligence; lease negotiations; negotiation of leasehold mortgages; coordination with third parties (lenders, contractors, prime landlords, etc.); execution, delivery and (where applicable) recording of lease-related documents; and subsequent exercise of options, other preferential rights, and contingent acquisitions of leased property.
Our attorneys regularly draft and negotiate lease agreements, term sheets, letters of intent, subleases, lease assignments, landlord consents, recognition agreements, memoranda of leases, subordination, non-disturbance and attornment agreements (SNDAs), landlord subordination agreements, broker listing agreements, and estoppel certificates. We blend a comprehensive knowledge of Texas and Louisiana real estate law with the resources of attorneys with experience in complementary practices such as acquisitions and divestitures, financing, corporate services, environmental law, and commercial litigation; however, our services are not limited to properties located in Louisiana and Texas. As a member of Meritas, a worldwide network of law firms, we are able to provide or coordinate services for properties located anywhere in the United States as well as many foreign countries.
At each stage of a lease transaction, we work diligently and efficiently for our clients to protect and advance their unique interests and to achieve their objectives. We can assist our clients with lease transactions long after the lease agreement has been signed, from coordination on operating expense disputes and other landlord/tenant disputes, to evictions and implementation of lease options and preferential rights to lease and/or purchase property.
