Our firm also has a unique specialty in environmentally-friendly, “green” leasing matters. At FB&G, our representation in leasing-related matters includes the drafting and negotiation of leases, subleases, financing documents, and any other documentation necessary in connection with leasing matters.

FB&G is a full-service law firm, and we are well prepared to handle disputes that arise in the landlord-tenant relationship. Our talented litigation attorneys have extensive experience assisting both commercial and residential landlords and tenants through trial and appellate proceedings. Whether you are a landlord having problems with a nonpaying tenant that refuses to vacate or you are a tenant who believes you rights are being violated, we have the experience to represent you efficiently and effectively.
