Negotiating and Drafting Restaurant Leases: Emerging Trends and Developments
A live 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will focus on drafting and negotiating the provisions of restaurant leases and emerging trends. The panel will discuss how the operational aspects of a restaurant impact provisions in the lease, tenant improvements, franchise relationships, operational issues in mixed-use developments, insurance provisions and coverages, and issues applicable to tenants generally.
- Restaurant tenants generally: distinguishing features
- Tenant improvements/buildout provisions
- Allocation of responsibility between landlord and tenant
- Equipment and furnishings: lender rights upon lease or loan default
- Franchised (chain) restaurants: rights of franchisor upon default under lease or franchise
- Insurance provisions and coverages
- Other provisions: co-tenancy, go dark, termination provisions, parking, options to renew, insurance
- Subordination, non-disturbance, and attornment agreements
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How do the operational aspects of a restaurant impact provisions in a restaurant lease?
- What are the concerns for a mixed-use development, and how might they be reflected in the lease?
- Given the expense of a restaurant buildout, how might financing arrangements impact the lease?
- How might a franchise agreement affect the provisions of a restaurant lease and the buildout process?
- What are the nuisance concerns to address in a restaurant lease?
