Goldfarb & Fleece LLP has emerged as one of the premier firms in representing owners of retail properties and we are second-to-none in our ability to close a lease at a competitive cost. We serve as leasing counsel to both publicly traded and privately held owners of retail properties in the New York metropolitan area and throughout the country. We understand the intricacies of regional shopping malls, power centers, neighborhood and community shopping centers, mixed-use properties, landmark urban properties, transit hubs, entertainment and lifestyle centers, and hotels and resorts. Our firm has negotiated all types of leases, including anchor store leases, junior anchor store leases, in-line mall store leases, restaurant leases, pad leases and ground leases, most of which are with national retailers.
Our attorneys represent many owners on a portfolio-wide basis. This allows us to assist them with establishing uniform leasing practices and procedures throughout their portfolios, enabling us to be more efficient and economical in our representation and to assist our clients in streamlining their internal lease administration functions. The breadth of our practice and the longevity of our relationships allow us to take a strategic approach to the leasing and development of all types of shopping centers and other retail projects.
Many of our clients consult us at the earliest stages of the development of a project, allowing us to negotiate the letters of intent for the anchor and major store leases. We have extensive experience with all stages of the shopping center development process, including drafting and negotiating reciprocal easement agreements, development agreements and construction agreements. Using this ground-up approach, we keep track all of the moving and interlocking pieces of a project to help our clients achieve their business goals.
