This program is a must both for experienced real estate attorneys who seek to refine their knowledge of the commercial leasing process as well as for new practitioners looking to add this valuable skill set to their practice. Our panel of seasoned commercial real estate practitioners will provide attendees with an in-depth analysis of critical issues from both the tenant and landlord perspectives.

Learn to successfully negotiate and draft crucial lease components that have the greatest legal and financial implications while taking into account common pitfalls to avoid.

Speakers will address a multitude of important topics including insurance and indemnity issues, security and guaranties, gross leases, triple net leases, alternations, and the allocation of operating expenses and taxes (as well as tenant audit rights). Further program topics will focus on unique considerations related to special tenant rights to expand the term, expansion rights, and rights of first offer or refusal on additional space. From retail leases to commercial office space transactions, landlord to tenant, participants will leave this program prepared to address issues central to commercial lease agreements.

To illustrate various points in the discussion, panelists will reference sample lease transaction documents, which will be provided in the course materials.
