Shopping Center DealMaker’s Handbook®

with 62 Ready-to-Edit Proposals and Letters of Intent in Word

The Foreward to Shopping Center DealMaker’s Handbook® was written by William Reavey, a prominent California real estate attorney. In it he discusses the need for comprehensive, easy-to-use, preliminary agreements to facilitate the deal-making process. Using quality preliminary agreement forms increases the likelihood that all important deal points are addressed up front and accelerates the deal-making process. As we all know, use of poor quality, vague and some sometimes self-contradictory term sheets often result in attorneys being called upon the flesh out what is missing. In essence, one of the benefits of a LOI that addresses all key deal points is the parties can move forward without incurring expensive legal fees prematurely. Lawyers, in particular, should find this Foreword interesting.


“...[T]his system so artfully supports innovating thinking, its design and function may serve as a blueprint for a whole new form of specialized reference tools...will improve work product, save time—and for a change may even make the lawyer the hero.”

— American Bar Association’s Probate & Property
