Lease Negotiations

Vine Solutions was engaged to manage lease negotiations. Our client was a 50 year old family owned restaurant located on leased real estate that a publicly traded real estate investment trust wished to acquire and redevelop. Prior to hiring Vine Solutions, the client was intimidated by the negotiations with the real estate investment trust. Vine Solutions successfully negotiated a new long-term lease for the restaurant on favorable economic terms. In addition, the Landlord provided a significant free rent period and paid for a complete remodel, re-fixturization and relocation of the restaurant.

"Edward is a very knowledgeable and shrewd negotiator. His calm and professional demeanor, along with his extensive experience made it easy to put my trust and the future of our 50 year old business in his hands."

-Margaret Wade, Brennan's Restaurant, Berkeley, California

Vine Solutions has negotiated numerous leases on favorable terms. Clients include Straits Café, Sino Restaurant, Village Café, Gordon Biersch Brewing Company, Inc. Left Bank and Chow.

Lease & Contracts

Vine Solutions has negotiated numerous real estate leases for clients over the years. In 2004, Vine Solutions negotiated and drafted the letter of intent, business partnership agreement and lease for Sino Restaurant, LLC, an 8,600 square foot restaurant, to be opened at Santana Row in September 2005 by Straits Restaurant Group. Vine Solutions was able to negotiate the business relationship and the lease on terms that were substantially more favorable than those negotiated for the Straits Restaurant Group's original lease at Santana Row despite a much-improved commercial real estate market.
