Karen L. Boore is a commercial real estate attorney with a focus on commercial development, economic development incentives, construction law, and commercial leasing.
Prior to joining the firm, Karen served as a federal court intern for the Honorable John Corbett O’Meara, U.S. District Court Judge for the Eastern District of Michigan. She also worked with Wayne County’s Economic Development Growth Engine.
Karen represents landlords and tenants across the United States in the negotiation of leases for office, warehouse, and flex space ranging from 1,000 rentable square feet to over 100,000 rentable square feet. Each negotiation addresses the represented party’s needs with respect to the space, including the terms of any build-out. As a part of this practice, Karen will also negotiate subordination, non-disturbance, and attornment agreements on behalf of tenants.
Karen's representation in this area has included Fortune 50 companies in nationwide negotiations.
Karen has acted as real estate counsel on multiple wind energy development projects on behalf of lenders, investors, and a utility company developer/acquirer. By working closely with opposing counsel or land agents to obtain curative documents to address title matters, and through negotiating coverages with title companies, Karen and the Miller Canfield team have worked to confirm that the rights necessary to build and operate the project are in place and that conflicting third-party rights are addressed. Furthermore, Karen has worked to prepare and revise form easement agreements that protect the wind developer and accurately reflect the operations and business processes in place. Representing the acquirer in project acquisitions, Karen has used extensive due diligence experience to outline a due diligence process that works for each project.
Karen's negotiations have involved representation of various utility companies in acquisition of wind energy projects, some in excess of $150 million dollars. These deals resulted in the development of several new wind energy projects in the state of Michigan.
