Leasing & Asset Management
Leasing & Asset Management
Sheley, Hall & Williams was originally founded as a boutique firm providing leasing and asset management services for commercial owners.
Our leasing practice remains a fundamental core component of the firm dedicated primarily to representing landlords, but we have significantly expanded our leasing practice to provide legal services to corporate and entrepreneurial tenants, particularly end-user corporate tenants.
Sheley, Hall & Williams handles sophisticated leasing transactions across the country for a wide variety of real estate owners including:
- Mixed-use projects
- Multi-tenant facilities
- Single tenant facilities, including build-to-suit transactions
- Speculative projects
- Sale/Leaseback transactions
We negotiate all aspects of leasing, including the following:
- Space leases
- Master leases
- Ground leases
- Ancillary documents such as:
- Letters of Credit
- Work Letters
- License Agreements
Additionally, we assist our clients with all aspects of asset management during their ownership of a project, including:
- Property Management
- Exclusive Listing Agreements
- Service Agreements
- Various types of Telecommunications Agreements
Our client list includes developers, insurance companies, pension funds, REITs, private investment companies, real estate development firms, as well as corporate clients engaging in every type of office, retail, and industrial lease transaction. We also represent sublandlords and subtenants, and assignors and assignees.
By way of example, we represent one of the nation’s largest privately owned, international real estate firms with billions of dollars in assets under its control. Sheley, Hall & Williams negotiates and finalizes leasing transactions for this client with respect to several million square feet of office space in projects throughout the Southeast. Another Sheley, Hall & Williams leasing client is among the largest global asset managers with several million square feet of office projects in the Southeast and we represent a large privately held global real estate investment and management firm with respect to more than 42 properties. Another large leasing client, whom we have represented since before the inception of the firm, is a privately held commercial real estate private equity firm with millions of square feet of office projects under asset management.
Leasing work for these and other clients has been, and continues to be, a vital component of our practice. We understand the economic and financial impact of each lease transaction on the value of our clients’ assets and their long-term business strategies. Our success in this area has resulted in strong relationships with our long-standing clients, with new projects added every year, and our reputation as industry leaders in the area of commercial leasing means that new clients primarily come to us through referrals.
Representative leasing transactions over the past several years include:
