Real estate licensees are always reluctant to get into a public discussion of this topic as their lawyers warn them about "conspiring to fix prices in restraint of free trade." Good luck.

Real Estate fees are negotiable. Typically the landlord/developer pays the fee which is split between the listing broker and the cooperating broker. I have had instances where the tenant prospect pays their brokers fee.

This is very important question although it is violation of the antitrust law to discuss the commission with other brokers. The commission is negotiable.
The right question should be which tenant is better to my client, and the answer is, If you were the landlord which tenant would you prefers to have. Doing good job securing the best possible tenant it pays beyond the commission.
Good luck

Search for commercial REALTORS / Brokers in your area and call and inquire as to their commission structure for handling this type of property in your area. Get several and you will find the range typical quoted in your area. All fees are negotiable and vary from area to area.
