Sale Leaseback

When cash and liquidity are top priorities, the sale and leaseback of real estate (or other assets) can be a smart strategy—provided the legal and business aspects of the deal are executed with care and diligence. Our team coordinates all aspects of transactions: the purchase and sale agreement, negotiation of the lease form, and negotiations around due diligence, including titles, surveys, and environmental issues. We tailor our representation to get the job done in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We take into account the nature and scope of the properties or assets involved, and your goals, matching appropriate resources and expenditures.
