Retail

Arnall Golden Gregory’s Retail Team provides practical legal advice and business guidance to developers, landlords, investors, lenders, property managers, and retailers. The team’s real estate and other attorneys are actively involved in all facets of the retail industry: acquisitions, financing, leasing, franchising, dispute resolution, tax, bankruptcy workouts and environmental due diligence.

AGG’s Retail Team is among the most active in the Southeast and is respected nationally. The team represents small, midsize and large clients around the country and abroad. For example, we serve as outside leasing counsel for prominent projects in the Buckhead community of Atlanta, the River Oaks community in Houston and for numerous regional and national landlords, including Westfield, Gregory Greenfield and Associates, and Trademark. The team also represents multiple restaurants and franchise concepts, mixed-use developments, the real estate divisions of large private equity companies, and inbound foreign investors.

Due to the breadth of its practice, AGG’s Retail Team is able to offer unique market insight as we advise our clients regarding their most complex deals and problems. One of the team’s strengths is a deep bench of legal experts from numerous practices at AGG who can address virtually any client issue related to the retail industry.

Team members frequently write about key issues that are important to retail clients, present to select groups and are quoted in business publications. Each year, a large contingent of real estate attorneys attend and present at the ICSC U.S. Shopping Center Law Conference. Team members also are actively involved in the Urban Land Institute, the International Bar Association, the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL), Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW), the Georgia Bar Association, the Atlanta Bar Association and the Young Atlanta Real Estate Alliance.

Over several decades, AGG’s retail industry lawyers have built a reputation of providing legal advice that helps clients succeed.
