Tenant-Side National Leasing Representation

Tenant-Side National Leasing Representation

Tarter Krinsky & Drogin’s real estate practice is diverse and highly sophisticated. Among other areas of focus, we have one of the preeminent commercial leasing practices in New York City. While we represent institutional owners and developers on the landlord-side, we also have particular experience representing enterprise-level tenants in executing their national leasing programs.

TKD works side-by-side with our clients’ in-house real estate and legal teams, going well beyond the role of traditional outside legal advisor. We become a deeply integrated partner in our clients’ real estate programs, resulting in invaluable efficiencies, institutional knowledge and memory, and close working relationships. We get to know our clients’ businesses inside and out, and as a result, are able to assess and address risk and potential liability quickly, and prevent issues from arising in the first place. We represent many of our tenant-clients on a portfolio-wide basis, allowing us to assist them in establishing best-practice leasing procedures, driving efficiencies and reducing costs.

We shine in high-pressure situations, such as corporate mergers and acquisitions. Knowing our clients’ businesses as well as we do enables us to step into highly-complex transactions at whatever stage and seamlessly shoulder all leasing-related and other real estate and corporate aspects of the deal. Our clients value not only our ability to dexterously manage transactions with innumerable moving parts, but also the confidence and sense of calm we bring. We enjoy what we do, and our clients can feel it.

TKD represents one of the country’s largest insurance services providers in executing its national office leasing program, including regular periods of intense, deadline-critical work affecting numerous local markets at once in connection with significant multi-office acquisitions. In addition, we are currently assisting one of Europe’s largest retailers in connection with a broad, multi-faceted expansion into the U.S. market. We are working with one of New York City’s most celebrated restaurants in executing a strategic expansion into key U.S. markets.

Our value proposition is simple. With TKD, you get an extension of your team – a committed group of talented attorneys that knows your organization and cares as much about your success as our own – with the responsiveness and accountability of an outside service provider that is continually seeking to impress, earn and re-earn your trust, and win your business anew every day.

Our capabilities are no less than those of large, household-name law firms, but our rates are significantly lower – by as much as 25% (or more).

We have experience across all market sectors, including office, retail, restaurant, warehouse and industrial. With a long track record representing both tenants and landlords, we understand what motivates each side in a lease negotiation, allowing us to negotiate more effectively and resourcefully, and achieve optimal solutions for our clients, at lower costs. We regularly work alongside all of the major brokerage companies, who appreciate our sensible approach to getting deals done.

We have forged strong and lasting relationships with many of our clients, who turn to us time and again for reliable, savvy, pragmatic tenant-side leasing solutions.
