Biography

Mark D. Eisemann's practice encompasses all aspects of real estate development, with an emphasis in theatre, retail, office, warehouse, and medical office leasing for both landlords and tenants.

Mark is familiar with the competing interests of developers, lenders, and occupants in mixed use urban and suburban developments, lifestyle/entertainment centers, regional malls, power centers, neighborhood centers, and industrial/warehouse parks. He understands that balancing these competing interests in negotiations requires creative solutions to fact-specific circumstances, clear and concise drafting, and an ability to understand the business objectives of the various interested parties.

Often dealing with complex redevelopment issues, Mark is experienced at drafting, negotiating, analyzing, and modifying redevelopment agreements, reciprocal easement agreements, cost sharing agreements, and ground leases. He strives to identify the important issues in a transaction early so that they can be promptly resolved and the transaction timely completed.

Mark’s representation of a national movie exhibitor has allowed him to work on transactions throughout the United States.
