We offer a broad range of services related to commercial leasing. We act for landlords and tenants in preparing and negotiating routine and complex commercial leases and related documentation for retail, office, and industrial premises.

We build a relationship with each of our clients to better understand their businesses and provide them with quality legal representation that meets their unique needs.

We advise landlords and tenants on matters such as:

  • Retail leasing (enclosed centres, strip plazas, and free-standing buildings);
    • For cannabis retail leasing, visit our checklist of preliminary steps for tenants and landlords;
  • Office and industrial leasing;
  • Ground leases (i.e. farmland, vacant land, or buildings);
  • Lease interpretation including advising on special rights (exclusives, terminations, area calculations), operating costs and realty tax issues, risk allocations, maintenance and repair obligations, defaults, termination, and eviction (we do not assist in litigious leasing files but can refer you to a trusted litigation lawyer in our circle); and
  • Other agreements such as offers to lease, subleases, assignments of leases, lease extensions, lease renewals, and amendments to leases.
