Capell Barnett Matalon & Schoenfeld has a sophisticated full-service commercial and residential practice that can assist you with a wide range of leasing and landlord-tenant matters. Our attorneys help clients with the purchase, sale, and development of real property, draft and negotiate commercial leases, litigate property disputes and other landlord-tenant matters, and aid in real property management. In addition, we provide counsel and litigate matters of commercial and residential leasing regulation, special considerations in light of the 2019 HSTPA Tenant Protection Act as it applies to both commercial and residential tenancies, procedural and strategic changes related to COVID-19’s effects on the courts and rental markets, and negotiation of commercial lease restructuring or termination.

Landlord / Tenant

Our attorneys are highly skilled in landlord-tenant litigation, with decades of experience. As attorneys who represent landlords, no matter the size, we are in the best position to provide sophisticated representation to landowners, real estate investors and developers. It is vital for landlords to have qualified, knowledgeable and aggressive attorneys on their side in order to protect their investments. A significant portion of our practice is devoted to representing religious and other not-for-profit organizations and their property holdings. We have a unique understanding of the issues that they deal with, including their goals in furthering their mission and ministry.

Our tenant representation is no different; we aggressively protect tenants’ business interests with our expertise in leasing matters. We will analyze every clause of your lease, including those created using Blumberg® or other forms. Businesses are bought and sold based upon the value of the balance of their leases, which can make the lease one of the tenant’s most valuable commodities.

As seasoned and successful litigators, the Capell Barnett Matalon & Schoenfeld landlord-tenant team has the know-how and experience on both sides of the table to help you protect and promote your interests, whether you are the landlord or the tenant. Protecting your business is our primary concern.
