Physical Location Plays Critical Role in Brand Interaction, Whether Purchase is In-Store or Online 

  • Whether your space needs are on a singular local-scale, national multi-market, or a cross-border global level, our Retail Tenant Representation  

  • Our Retail experts help navigate the complexities of retail leasing—and guide you towards what’s next for your real estate strategy. We evaluate your current situation and future needs to make sure each location supports your marketing, operational and financial goals. Our approach encompasses market analytics, new market entry and expansion, customer analytics, and portfolio optimization.

Industries and Specialties


Partner of Choice for the World's Top Occupiers of Real Estate Across Industries

  • In a business climate that demands specialization, Cushman & Wakefield's Industries & Specialties are key competitive differentiators. Our Professionals leverage their subject mater expertise to create sector-specific tenant representation solutions.  Cushman & Wakefield can offer technical industry approaches for industries with unique needs such as healthcare, data centers, life sciences and more.  


Cushman & Wakefield’s Tenant Representation practice is a full-service real estate advisory that represents the tenant, or occupier, in the negotiation and execution of a lease, purchase or disposition of commercial space. Our critical market knowledge, comprehensive research, financial analysis and landlord relationships act in concert to find and execute the best deal for the tenant.

Our brokers leverage transaction expertise, local research and global insight to help our clients understand current real estate dynamics to make intelligent, well-informed decisions with their real estate. By evaluating the financial position of properties and landlords, we present options that suit the tenant’s needs, maximize leverage and minimize risk and cost.

While no two clients’ needs are identical, our approach to each transaction assignment (acquisition, disposition, relocation, renewal, etc.) shares the critical elements of early goal setting, thorough market research and due diligence, tenacious negotiations and attainment of measurable results. For workplace and other consulting services we develop alternative occupancy scenarios with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to evaluate real estate strategies.


COVID-19 has fundamentally changed how and where we work. It is critical to start with data on business objectives and staff, how they work and how they feel. Tools like experience per square foot™ quantifies and qualifies the employee experience. Cushman & Wakefield employs a variety of consultative and tactical tools to address space requirements and configuration, identifying the personas returning to the office, and change management as you reimagine the new workplace.


Cushman & Wakefield’s Location Strategy & Labor Analytics professionals partner with brokers, account directors and transaction managers to identify optimal location strategy solutions — global, national and local — for our clients. Their expertise and experience uncover the inherent tradeoffs between access to the right kind of labor, cost efficiencies and the impact of competition for talent that location strategies present.

CRE executives are seeking solutions to better position their organizations for the new economic realities ahead. As a leading advisor to both occupiers and investors (landlords), Cushman & Wakefield’s leasing and account professionals can outline considerations for tenants in preparation for lease renegotiations.
