Experience 

  • We represented a major telecommunications company in developing its 1.2 million-square-foot headquarters building. The project ranged from complex lease and tenant fit-out negotiations to assistance with the purchase of specialty components, including a four-story video wall and a two-story solid glass staircase.
  • We represented a national retailer in lease negotiations for 40 build-to-suit stores and self-developed sites, and advised the operator of its sister stores in several lease negotiations, including a transaction with another retailer on an 80,000-square-foot self-developed combined store.
  • We represent United Properties and its affiliates in acquisition, development and leasing, including senior housing cooperatives and apartment projects in the Twin Cities area.
