Why Consensus Legal?

Consensus Legal is a premier real estate law firm in California, specializing in industrial, office, retail, mixed-use, and residential properties.  From leasing and sales transactions to landlord-tenant and property ownership matters, we offer cutting-edge solutions in an evolving real estate market.


Real estate transactions are a necessary component of a successful business, but they are often unnecessarily complicated and burdensome, draining resources and causing a great deal of frustration. At Consensus Legal, our clients are able to keep the focus on their core business while we streamline and simplify the process. We understand that clients have immediate and future goals for any property. It is our objective to develop solutions today that anticipate both immediate and future success.

Fixed Fee Model

Consensus Legal is unique because our clients have cost certainty for many real estate transactions. Unlike virtually every other real estate practice, we offer fixed fee pricing for many commercial leases (particularly tenant representation), purchase/sale agreements, and other real estate contracts. After closing hundreds of real estate transactions in California, our efficiency allows us to provide cost certainty.


Our attorneys have closed transactions totaling $1 billion (est.), while representing a diverse range of clients, including Fortune 500 companies, REITs, local and regional businesses, and high net worth individuals. Consensus Legal publishes the leading blog on the AIR real estate contracts, the most widely used real estate contracts in California. We regularly give seminars to real estate professionals on leasing and purchase/sale transactions. Through our specialized focus on California real estate transactions, we offer our clients unmatched efficiency and expertise.





In working with Usman Mohammed on multiple leasing transactions and a sale, he was focused on finding solutions at the early state of the negotiation. His expertise with the contracts and understanding of the time-sensitive nature of a real estate transaction provided my clients with the necessary legal safeguards without losing sight of the overall objective of completing the transaction. I recommend Consensus Legal to any business entering into a lease or purchase/sale transaction.

Ty Newland, Senior Director, Cushman & Wakefield

I have worked with Usman Mohammed on numerous industrial leasing transactions, some were straightforward, and some were complex, because they involved a substantial build out. He proactively addressed the thorny issues, and demonstrated an uncanny ability to solve them, utilizing his leasing expertise and understanding of the business of commercial real estate.
