Commercial landlord & tenant disputes
Disputes that arise between commercial landlords and tenants can be economically challenging to both a landlord and a tenant. Both parties have a significant financial interest at stake, and efficient resolution is typically in everyone's best interest.
We handle landlord and tenant disputes and aim for a speedy resolution without compromising any of our clients' rights in the process. We seek to prove our clients' claims and hold the other party accountable to the terms of the lease.
An effective contract is one that should equally represent and provide mutual benefits to each party. In a competitive business environment, many contracts do not propose equally beneficial terms for each party.
Our firm is routinely engaged in contract disputes when the ramifications of an unbalanced legal agreement arise and cause ruinous consequences:
- Financial damages
- Performance disputes
- Allegations of fraud and misrepresentation
We represent clients during active disputes and offer preemptive contract drafting and review contracts to remedy potential complications before they occur.
The cornerstone to business success is the ability to perform solid transaction management in order to provide a seamless exchange of services or goods and capital. Transactions can be vastly complicated, in terms of the legal responsibility that is governed by the plethora of interstate and even international laws that can apply to a single transactional exchange.
Our firm assists clients during the drafting of the initial contract exchange and afterward in the event that any complications should arise. We provide legal structure and guidance that aims to protect our clients' property and maximize their financial gains.
