Strong, Strategic Advocacy In Landlord and Tenant Disputes

Successfully resolving a dispute often turns on the interpretation of the terms within the lease. After over four decades of practice, our business lawyers know how to dissect the details with precision, and find pragmatic options to bring about a consensus between landlords and tenants.

We pursue the most efficient and effective solutions possible. Many times, agreement can be achieved with skilled negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation. If amicable means prove impossible, our lawyers can draw on years of litigation experience to bring the matter before a court judge for a decision.

Reliable Guidance for Commercial Landlords

When encountering disputes with tenants, a commercial landlord has various remedies at his or her disposal under the law. However, landlords must use extreme caution in the choice and execution of these options. The law stipulates rules and restrictions on how landlords may proceed when engaging these remedies. Failure to ensure proper compliance with both the lease agreement and the law could result in unnecessary and costly litigation.

Our role is to help commercial landlords minimize such risk. We provide clear, straightforward advice about the rights and duties of landlords toward tenants, and can uncover creative solutions to end the disputes effectively.
