Our lawyers have extensive experience successfully representing technology companies in the development and implementation of corporate real estate strategies. For these companies, real estate often is not their primary business, yet the need for facilities that can evolve with their rapidly changing products and workforce is paramount to meeting their growth and other strategic objectives.
We bring an interdisciplinary approach to corporate real estate, assisting clients in determining whether to lease or purchase existing space or develop purpose-built campuses for their own use. Lawyers from our transactional, land use, construction, environmental and risk management practice areas work together with our clients’ facilities and government affairs teams to ensure that real estate strategy is synchronized with integrated broader corporate goals.
Our land use lawyers have successfully entitled millions of square feet of office, life science, lab and advanced manufacturing space for technology companies ranging from startups to Fortune 100 companies. We assist with all aspects of the due diligence process to determine whether space is or can be entitled for the range of uses required by our clients, as well as implementing technology-specific strategies for the entitlement of new space.
In addition to the land use entitlement services we provide across the office sector, we understand the unique real estate needs of technology companies, assisting our clients in using tools such as Development Agreements to balance certainty and flexibility in their corporate real estate portfolios. In addition, we are familiar with the regulatory environments that drive corporate real estate decisions as well as the political, media and community influences that sometimes dictate different approaches than might be appropriate for a typical developer.
