Sign Here: Avoiding Legal Pitfalls of Commercial Leases

March 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Are you looking to lease space for your business but struggling to understand the fine print?

Commercial leasing is considerably less regulated than residential leasing. This workshop is tailored to provide entrepreneurs new to commercial leasing with valuable insights into some of the most common pitfalls.

Whether you’re a startup, expanding, or renewing your lease, our expert will skillfully guide you through the intricacies of lease agreements, helping you make informed decisions that align with your business goals. We’ll go over the process involved in procuring an agreement that not only suits your business but safeguards the interests of both parties.

Critical takeaways include assessing your needs, understanding lease terms, communication with landlords, skillful negotiating and closing the deal.
