Structuring and Negotiating Enforceable Lease Provisions to Protect Landlords and Tenants
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE will examine key tenant and developer default considerations in retail leases, the appropriate default remedies and enforceability of those remedies, and the role of the lender as it relates to landlord default.
