Our Industries

National Retail

Retail real estate continues to evolve. The classic small (mom and pop) store was succeeded by the big box concept, just as the latter concept is now subject to online retailers.

Major tenants and developers regionally and nationally have looked to us for informed representation. We have been called upon to handle the full range of legal aspects for retail chains across the country, from broker outsourcing, to facilitating market entry, to exit strategies, and to facilitating termination of underperforming locations, as well as all the corporate and administrative matters that arise daily.  With a team of lawyers concentrating full time on retail leasing, we are able to stay at the forefront of important and ever-changing issues.

Sills Cummis & Gross acts as counsel to many of the largest retail chains and some of the most important shopping center owners in the country.  Our highly targeted practice includes real estate, corporate, environmental, insurance and bankruptcy lawyers and litigators who have handled many industry-related disputes. We are active in various national associations, published in major trade magazines and are frequently called upon to speak to leaders of the industry on current matters affecting them.

Our National Retail Group has ranked in the top tiers of Chambers USA® Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers For Business* since its inception.
