COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
One of the first questions a business must answer is whether it makes more sense to own or rent. A commercial law firm must be able to advise a client respecting the pros and cons of each alternative.
Purchase or lease of commercial real estate
The practice of commercial real estate law runs the gamut from negotiating terms for the sale of property to multi-year, commercial leases; from land use and zoning issues to environmental concerns. The Nissenbaum Law Group has a wide range of experience in these areas.
