Shopping Centers


Linowes and Blocher LLP is a leader in representing shopping center developers and retailers in the acquisition, development, financing and leasing of shopping centers and mixed use centers.  We help secure governmental entitlements for regional malls, strip shopping centers, grocery and big-box anchored centers and mixed retail/office/residential projects in urban areas as well as suburban communities.  As commercial developers increasingly look to urban infill and redevelopment sites for development opportunities, our land use, real estate transactions and environmental attorneys work together to provide the depth of experience needed to get these complicated projects off the ground. In addition, our litigation and bankruptcy attorneys are ready to assist shopping center owners when a tenant defaults or enters bankruptcy, or otherwise needs to go to court.

Our work includes:

  • Reciprocal easement mechanisms
  • Commercial condominium regimes
  • Public/private partnerships with counties and cities
  • Leasing agreements
  • Litigation of all kinds
  • Business restructuring
  • Purchase and sale agreements
  • Zoning and development approvals
  • Entity formation
  • Real property tax, transfer and recordation tax and federal income tax planning
