Darrell is responsible for the leasing component of the Real Estate Group.

Darrell has extensive experience and expertise in all aspects of commercial, retail, office and industrial leasing, lease enforcement and dispute resolution on behalf of landlords, tenants, and property and asset managers.

Darrell's clients include closely-held and public corporations, financial institutions, asset managers, and property managers. They depend on him for his expertise and practical and cost-effective advice for their leasing and lease related matters.

Clients appreciate his expertise, direct and friendly demeanor, dedication to understanding their businesses, and proficiency in minimizing risk so they can operate their businesses effectively.

He has authored chapters in leading leasing publications including Shopping Centre Leases – 2nd Edition, The Commercial Lease, The Repair and Storage Lien Act: A Practical Guide and the 5th edition of The Commercial Lease, published in 2013: and Tenant's Rights and Remedies in a Commercial Lease - A Practical Guide ( 2nd Edition) to be published in 2014.

An articulate and confident speaker, Darrell is frequently sought out by his peers to contribute as a presenter and panelist at leasing and leasing-related conferences including the International Council of Shopping Centers, The 6 Minute Leasing Lawyer, RealLeasing, ICSC Roundtable, Gems of Commercial Leasing and more.
