Leasing & Asset Management
View People

The lease is the lifeblood of commercial real estate.  Understanding this important principle, Winstead's Leasing & Asset Management Industry Group has developed a national reputation for value-added service.  Our attorneys possess a unique understanding of market factors that can affect the lease negotiating and asset management processes, whether representing landlords or tenants.  Because we define success in our clients' terms, our approach to the practice is positive and informed.  Always attempting to build bridges, rather than barriers, we strive for creative solutions to the difficult issues our clients face.  The goal is a successful conclusion to negotiations, where both parties to the transaction are winners.

Knowing all clients are different, we tailor our approach to meet the needs of each client, and produce a result that accomplishes the client's objective in a cost-effective manner.  For example, through the use of state-of-the-art technology, we have implemented volume leasing programs and standardized documents (with alternative provisions) to streamline the lease drafting and negotiating process.
