Balancing Competing Interests and Protecting Rights of Both Landlords and Tenants
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will address the drafting and negotiation of restrictive covenants and exclusive use provisions in office and retail leases, best practices to protect landlord and tenant interests, and recent case law developments in the enforcement of these provisions.
