Real Estate Related Disputes
Commercial leases are often worth several million dollars over the span of their term and are often extremely detailed. Most global and national developers use lease formats that are extremely unfavorable to tenants. And yet, these commercial leases are often signed by tenant businesses without the analysis and negotiation necessary, leading to severe consequences, even for successful businesses. At times a business can realize long after entering a lease that a landlord failed to disclose prohibitive zoning restrictions.
At other times a tenant can see escalating monthly expenses undermining their profitability. A defaulting tenant can learn too late that simply leaving a premise despite a failing location can be far more costly than staying in business due to accelerated rent provisions. At times, radius restrictions or relocation clauses can have very negative consequences. Settlements for disputes based on such situations and many others can often be negotiated to avoid eviction or excessively costly judgments.
