Contracts & Leases

Our law firm provides gold standard legal counsel and representation to commercial clients in need of contracts, as well as lessors and lessees, throughout Louisiana, yet at a far more cost-sensitive rate than many other firms charge. We handle both transactional matters and litigation for clients in the commercial construction arena, as well as in other industries and sectors.


Contract Drafting and Transactional Matters


LAPEROUSE, APLC has extensive experience in drafting and negotiating contractual agreements for a wide range of professionals, businesses, and individuals. We also represent clients in matters over agreement disputes through commercial litigation and alternative dispute resolution.
Our attorneys have years of experience handling contract matters for individuals and businesses throughout Louisiana. We handle construction contracts, business-to-business contracts, employment contracts, real estate contracts and others.

We can assist you with - 

  • Contract drafting – when drafting a contract, we will receive input from both parties and strive to write a contract that meets the needs of our client.

  • Contract review – our attorneys can review a contract for inconsistencies and unacceptable clauses before you accept it.

  • Contract negotiation – we can negotiate the terms of a contract to assure your interests are protected.

  • Contract litigation – in addition to negotiation, we litigate breach of contract issues and other contract dispute matters.


Lease Drafting And Transactional Matters


Our attorneys are familiar with the intricacies of effectively negotiating, drafting and reviewing these important documents.
We are skilled in matters pertaining to - 

  • Industrial leases for warehouses, data centers, cold storage facilities and other industrial properties

  • Office leases for clients ranging from small business owners to major corporations

  • Mixed-use and retail leases for malls, entertainment centers, restaurants, health clubs, department stores and other properties

In addition to the actual commercial lease, we also assist clients with negotiating and structuring ancillary business law documents and commercial contracts such as property management agreements and insurance coverage policies.

Litigating Lease Disputes


The firm is adept at resolving lease disputes at trial or through alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation or arbitration. Such disputes can range from disagreements over common area maintenance (CAM) charges and co-tenancy clause violations to conflicts over rent adjustments and the interpretation of lease terms.
