This CLE webinar will prepare counsel for commercial landlords and tenants for leasing issues unique to technology companies. Our panel of real estate attorneys will explore issues that often arise in the negotiation of lease agreements and provide guidance on best practices for navigating these issues for tenants and landlords.

Description

Technology companies have needs distinct from other organizations when leasing office space attributable to their uniquely fast-paced growth and development strategies, and their vulnerability to market fluctuations. Counsel for landlords and tenants should be versed in the unique challenges of the work performed and the business life cycle of technology firms.

Among the unique issues counsel must be prepared to consider are terms addressing use provisions that accommodate pivotal business models, building services and capacities for power consumption and privacy concerns, interior build-outs attuned to tech culture and talent acquisition, and density and assignment and sub-leasing terms that consider the fast-paced growth strategies and an active acquisition market.

Listen as our panel of experienced real estate attorneys provides crucial insight for counsel facing these issues on behalf of commercial landlords or tenants.
