Join Shipman & Goodwin attorneys Kent Nevins, Lisa Zana and Eric Goldstein as they discuss commercial leasing strategies for both landlords and tenants, including with respect to challenges imposed by potential environmental liability and tenant bankruptcy. Based on our extensive experience in executing leasing platforms throughout the country, this webinar will review ways to maximize value and avoid traps for the unwary in leasing negotiations, large and small.

  • Gross Leases vs. Net Leases
  • Planning Considerations in a Changing Real Estate Market
