Commercial Leasing and Property Management

Portland Commercial Leasing Attorney

We are confident you will not find another law firm in town that is able to deliver the level of effectiveness and responsiveness that Slinde Nelson’s commercial real estate practice provides. We understand that commercial leasing and property management is a business based on timing. When an issue bubbles up, the first hours are critical. You need a resolution and you need one quickly, or you may not get one at all.

You need a law firm that knows your business, knows your property and know what they’re doing. You need someone who knows that a long-term relationship means a phone call here and there. It does not mean billing you for a three-hour memo when what you really need—all you really need—is a five-minute phone call and a game plan.

That is the difference between our commercial property law practice and what you are probably used to from our large firm counterparts.

We are former large firm attorneys who left to do something different. We are small on purpose. We are nimble, we can react quickly and we can get creative.

Simply stated, Slinde Nelson is your partner in establishing reliable and profitable lease agreements. We know the property markets in the Seattle and Portland areas. If and when trouble arises, we counsel and represent you in negotiation and litigation or alternative dispute resolution. We can advise you at every step, from drafting to enforcement to termination.

Whether in commercial, industrial, retail or office property, it is the sheer number of issues that can crop up on either side of a lease that require experience, knowledge and great thoroughness in drafting leases. We avoid the vague terms and ambiguities that can lead to disputes. We know the many problems that can arise, and we take them into account.

You have probably heard that before. What you probably have not heard, and almost certainly have not experienced is a law firm telling you and delivering on a central philosophy: Slinde Nelson is a firm that makes deals, not breaks them. We determine the terms that are important to you, we negotiate for them and we close the deal. We do not create issues just to keep billing. We close your deal and wait for the next one.

Here are just some of the issues that require attention and dispute resolution:

  • Parking
  • Utilities
  • Lease audits
  • Abandonment
  • Rent collection
  • Insurance issues
  • Options and renewal
  • Unlawful detainer actions
  • Repairs and maintenance
  • Common area maintenance
  • Assignments and amendments
  • Reviewing policies and procedures
  • Disputes over options and renewal terms
  • Eviction and collection of rent arrearages
  • Disputes over early termination of the lease by either party
