Leasing and Asset Management

SSL has a substantial leasing practice, representing both owners and users of office, industrial, R&D and retail space on a national basis, in a manner that is both cost-effective and business-minded. We have extensive experience in highly complex transactions across the full breadth of leasing, including full-building and build-to-suit leases, complex multi-tenant transactions, sale-leasebacks, ground leases, shopping center leases, corporate campus and other major corporate user leases, net lease and securitized transactions, subleases, and lease terminations and workouts. This breadth of experience means that our leasing lawyers work on a high volume of lease deals in numerous markets – the value of which is passed along to our clients, as we are able to assist not only with drafting and negotiating agreements, but also with deal structuring and providing relevant insight into current market trends and challenges. We bring this knowledge to every transaction, enabling us to tailor creative and cost-effective solutions and streamline the legal aspects of the transaction.


In addition to our deal experience, we have developed a unique expertise in form and client infrastructure development. We have created leases and related forms for all leasing products, as well as prepared “lease handbooks” of acceptable compromise clauses drafted on a client-by-client basis and in accordance with the individual client’s best practices and standard operating procedures. Our vast database of lease forms and alternative lease clauses enables us to provide the most effective and cost efficient legal representation for our clients.


Our lawyers also routinely work with clients to fulfill a full range of asset management needs, including property management, construction, brokerage and vendor agreements, as well as assistance with any leasing and asset management disputes that may arise. SSL’s real estate litigators and environmental attorneys are available to handle a wide range of landlord-tenant disputes, unlawful detainer actions and other real estate, land use and environmental matters in a manner that aims to minimize risk, enhance value and resolve disputes efficiently.
