Commercial leases can be complex and confusing for small business owners even in the best of times, but understanding your rights as a commercial tenant can become critical during emergency situations or economic recession. To assist local small business owners during this difficult time, this special legal workshop will help you understand the fine print in typical commercial leases, with emphasis on the lease terms and commercial real estate laws that can help you get through periods of financial pressure or deal with a non-performing landlord. We will also discuss the process of renewing, amending or modifying your lease during an economic down-cycle. Although taught by an experienced business and real estate attorney, this class does not constitute legal advice.
