How can Ronald Rohde Law help you?

If your business requires an office, our firm can save you money, whether you lease or buy.

* Commercial real estate document review (office or industrial)

Understanding a triple net (NNN) lease is crucial to preserving your capital and to avoid being taken advantage of by the landlord. We help you save time and money by preparing a Letter of Intent (LOI) first. This flat fee document outlines the terms and ensures that the lease negotiations will result in a signed lease.

A commercial lease agreement is a complicated document and outlines numerous rights and responsibilities of the Tenant. If a personal guaranty is required, hiring an experienced commercial real estate attorney to review the terms can help protect your personal assets in the event of a default.

* Real Estate purchase options for commercial business tenants

If you’re tired of wasting thousands of dollars on rent, consider buying your building and building equity each year. It is important to understand the key risks when purchasing a commercial real estate building and we can help minimize these when building your legal documents.
