As select legal counsel to the real estate industry, our commercial leasing attorneys confront the most complex leasing challenges head-on. In collaboration with the firm’s nationally recognized tax practitioners, they navigate complicated tax issues involved in commercial and industrial real estate leases, resolve Internal Revenue Service (IRS) investigations and advance market-leading guidance on contrasting tax interests.

Lease Disputes Concerning Tax Issues

We help corporations, developers and real estate investors with large scale, complicated multi-state real estate portfolios make the most of their leasing investments with revenue-enhancing tax counsel. We handle commercial leases for key tenants and landlords of office, retail, industrial, single- and mixed-use properties nationwide. Our work increasingly addresses lease disputes concerning tax issues. We handle IRS investigations of related party leases, address the unintended tax consequences of lease acquisition costs and resolve landlord-tenant conflicts and IRS ambiguities over property improvements.

Commercial Property Tax Valuations

We apply the experience of our marketing-leading property tax litigators to review and advise on assessment values and scour the laws and regulations that may provide qualifying commercial property owners with significant tax savings or exemptions. When necessary, we challenge the legality of property tax levies and handle appeals in local and state courts.
