Why You Should Attend
This seminar will provide insightful, practical information useful to real estate business representatives, lawyers, brokers, lenders, and other professionals in negotiating, documenting and enforcing commercial leases. Particular attention will be given to topics that are especially relevant in today’s real estate environment, including market and business trends, the impact of technology and the real estate market’s recovery from the decline of the late 2000's. By offering unique perspectives from industry experts in areas such as retail leasing, insurance, accounting and litigation matters, the program will seek to educate participants in the real state industry about issues that are commonly encountered in lease transactions, but not always fully understood by the parties.
Our faculty offers specific suggestions for lease provisions and ways to handle particular issues that frequently arise in negotiations and during tenancy. The use of examples allows participants to apply concepts to real world situations, based on the knowledge of experienced real estate lawyers, leasing agents, and other professionals in the field.
Now in its fourth year, this program continues to be updated and refined, and is a must for anyone who is engaged in commercial real estate transactions or the ownership and operation of leased real property.
