Bowers Law Helps Clients Like You Get An Edge With Commercial Leasing

For more than 20 years, Bowers Law has helped landlord and tenant clients successfully negotiate commercial leases. Here are just a few impressions our attorneys have made on some of those clients after working with us.

Marci Schneider Carl
Director of Real Estate, Crate and Barrel

Kellye is an excellent attorney who has been a great business partner, navigating many challenging leasing situations over the years. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and resourceful. We appreciate that she offers solutions and works well with cross-functional teams. I am confident that Kellye will exceed your expectations.

Farhan Ali
VP, Asset Management & Capital Markets, Highlands REIT, Inc.

“I’ve worked closely with Kellye for over five years leasing up our retail shopping center portfolio. We have worked on many complicated deals with sophisticated, nationally-recognized tenants. She’s responsive, creative, works well with opposing counsel, and knows how to get things done. Her advice and expertise have proven invaluable, and I’m excited to continue working with her on many leasing deals in the future.”

Mike Lombardo
Managing Broker, Blue Star Properties

“Kellye is my go-to real estate attorney who specializes in downtown office leases. She handled over 600,000 square feet of leases for me when we redeveloped The National (where Revival Food Hall is) and I have also referred many tenant rep clients to her as well. Kellye used to be at the big firms, but branched out on her own to give her clients more personalized attention. She is great to work with and a tenacious negotiator on her client’s behalf.”

Alissa Adler
Senior Vice President, Colliers International

“I knew Kellye first as a corporate attorney at Duke Realty and was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her when she went to the private sector. Kellye has all of the knowledge and skills of a “big firm” attorney but is able to provide much more personalized service. Her clients are lucky to get the best of both worlds!”

John Caldwell
President, Paradigm Properties | Paradigm Capital Advisors

“I’ve been working with Kellye on commercial lease transactions for the last five years and I can give her my highest recommendation. She has deep experience and a level of sophistication about leases that enable her to add value to almost every transaction, frequently posing creative solutions in addition to an attorney’s traditional role of keeping their client out of trouble. Kellye has a high level of knowledge in her area of expertise and I’ve found that I can trust her to dig into the details and “see around the corner”. However, the best thing about working with Kellye is her responsiveness and her turnaround time – she has been terrific on both.”

Steve Degodny
Vice President, Leasing, Golub and Company

“It’s an absolute pleasure working with Kellye. Working with her provides a sense of comfort when it comes to legal lease matters. And whether it is from the tenant or landlord perspective, there’s a sense of confidence to get equitable transactions completed with her client’s goals and objectives at the forefront.”

Michael Bradford

“The whole spirit of the negotiations, particularly in the past couple of days, were very much goal-oriented collectively. But a lot of it has to do with the attorneys getting along, so thank you very much for having a jovial attitude about it, staying on top of business points and watching our back on things that we didn’t notice from a business perspective. Thanks very much for all of your help, the long calls and grinding through the details without getting deal-fatigue.”

Kathleen Burgi-Sandell
Vice President / Regional Manager James Campbell Company LLC

“I have worked with Kellye Bowers for nearly 18 years, over which time she has handled a variety of legal issues for our Midwest portfolio of properties which I asset manage. Kellye’s work has predominantly been the drafting of tenant leases, but she has also advised on such issues as environmental, easements, management agreements, and association documents. Kellye is easily one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. She approaches her work from a clear ownership perspective and always reaches reasonable and timely outcomes. I can highly recommend Kellye without any reservation.”

Ari Klein
Cushman & Wakefield

“Working with Kellye is a total joy, no matter which side of the transaction she’s on. She has a unique talent of being able to simplify matters that otherwise seemed complex and is totally respectful of all parties while fully representing her client’s interests. I’m always pleased when Kellye is involved.”

Victoria Donati
SVP, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, Crate & Barrel Holdings, Inc.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kellye for a number of years. Her knowledge of the law and experience in handling landlord/tenant matters is exceptional. She has a knack for creating a relaxed, friendly atmosphere among all parties involved. We would not hesitate to refer Kellye to anyone who needs assistance with their leasing needs.”

Greg Nieder
Principal, Oak Commercial Properties | Oak Realty Group

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kellye since the founding of Oak Commercial Partners and she has been an instrumental advisor in helping us reach our objectives. It’s rare to find the mix of knowledge, creativity, resolve, and good nature Kellye brings to the table. Oak’s industrial portfolio is comprised of a diverse group of uses and Kellye has been a value-added partner in our interactions with institutional and entrepreneurial tenants alike. No matter the issue, we’ve yet to have a question about which she can’t provide guidance, and her responsiveness and attentiveness almost makes it seem like we have dedicated in-house counsel.”
