      Commercial Lease Negotiations

      Lease Negotiations Attorney
      Commercial leases are highly complex. The documents are lengthy and difficult to understand. They may be filled with provisions that an untrained eye would miss even if he or she read it carefully more than once. Yet, these documents are the basis for commercial landlord and tenant relationships, and serve as the building block for many start-up businesses. Without an advocate who can explain the commercial lease and protect your interests, you may find yourself in a legal bind.
      At Joseph Faria P.C., we represent both landlords and tenants in the negotiations of commercial leases. We pay the strictest attention to detail, making sure our clients fully understand their obligations and responsibilities under the lease. If there is a provision that strongly favors one side, or explicitly violates our clients' rights, we will work hard to negotiate a more favorable agreement.

      In addition to negotiating commercial leases, we represent business owners and others who want to get out of a lease due to various circumstances. We will thoroughly review thier situation and advise them on their legal options.
