Because our staff includes a former in-house counsel for a large property owner in San Francisco, we understand property ownership as a business and seek to assist our clients by taking a pragmatic, business savvy approach, rather than a purely legalistic approach.

SLG counsels both commercial and residential property owners, property management companies, lenders and real estate brokers regarding landlord-tenant matters including leasing, tenancy modifications, buyouts, rent control matters, and legal steps to ensure owners receive the maximum value for their properties upon sale or refinancing.

SLG has litigated landlord-tenant matters throughout California, including unlawful detainer, damages for breach of lease, declaratory relief, writs of mandate, and defense of tenant lawsuits including wrongful eviction and habitability claims. SLG also makes appearance before local rent boards and other administrative agencies to further its clients’ needs
