Commercial Leasing

Shumaker's commercial leasing group has the depth of experience and expertise to provide counsel on any type of leasing transaction, as well as any landlord-tenant issues or disputes that may arise, whether it be from the perspective of the owner, property manager, or tenant.

Shumaker represents landlords and property management companies in all phases of negotiating, drafting and enforcing lease agreements. Our experienced team of professionals understand that successful commercial landlords expect practical and competent legal advice. Whether we are negotiating a lease or prosecuting an eviction, our lawyers provide responsive and aggressive representation. We also have significant experience in prosecuting landlord's rights in bankruptcy court and defending property owners against Title III of the ADA architectural accessibility lawsuits. We represent the interests of many national property owners and local property managers across Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Ohio.

Shumaker also represents tenant entities seeking to lease space in any type of commercial property, including office, retail, healthcare, warehouse, and industrial, from the negotiation and drafting of the lease agreement itself to any issues that might arise during the lease relationship. Our leasing group has the experience and expertise to quickly identify the issues most important to our clients' particular interests and to negotiate a balanced lease agreement that best protects those interests, as well as to interpret, defend, and enforce such lease terms when necessary.
