Commercial leases lawyers

From modification the rent indexation rules, to the new division of obligations and charges between lessor and lessee, extension of the lease term and creation of the lessee’s right of pre-emption and application of the law over time – the status of commercial leases is changing and becoming more complex as legislative reforms significantly impact the negotiation and formation of the lease, its validity, its performance and its non-performance, and oblige those responsible for drafting legal agreements to radically change their contractual approach. Whether you are a lessor or a lessee, it is vital to incorporate these new standards and rapidly and efficiently take the necessary steps to prevent and risk of disputes. Legal assistance is therefore required at the earliest possible stage.

As experts in the new rules, familiar with the relevant case law, our associates can advise and assist you in the negotiation and drafting of your agreements, works disputes during the term of the lease, setting renewal rent, disputes relating to lessees’ failure to pay rent or charges, eviction or termination by all types of commercial lease; civil law leases, exceptional leases and professional leases.

Our associates are aware of your challenges and defend your interests with pragmatism, from a preventive perspective, favouring an amicable resolution to conflicts where appropriate.
