HSE serves as a one-stop shop for retailers seeking legal assistance related to new project development.

The firm’s Retail Real Estate Practice Area presently represents national retailers in locations across New York State and in all aspects of new store development including site selection/evaluation; control of sites through options, purchase agreements and leases; permitting; zoning; and contract negotiations.

We are experienced in providing advice and representation in matters relating to community protests, and offer counseling in all legal matters related to building and construction.

In addition to our work with national retail chains, we are also involved in complex leasing and acquisition transactions for a diverse group of retail projects such as regional malls, power centers, shopping centers, retail distribution centers, and mixed-use projects.

The work performed for retailers spans many legal disciplines. For example, our Litigation Practice Area represents anchor tenants in leasing disputes with mall owners, and our Environmental Law Practice Area has participated in large-scale redevelopment projects that have resulted in the emergence of multi-unit retail centers.
