Jonathan Bright to Speak at Practicing Law Institute’s “Negotiating Commercial Leases 2016” Program

Jonathan K. Bright

February 17, 2016

Jonathan Bright, a Partner in the Real Estate Department of Wilk Auslander, will be a speaker at the Practicing Law Institute’s (PLI) “Negotiating Commercial Leases 2016” course March 10-11 being held in New York City and also available via webcast.

Leases, widely understood as the building blocks of value for all real estate, are a primary business asset, but also contain landmines if not negotiated properly.  For a tenant, signing a lease that has not been properly written and negotiated can open them up to substantial liabilities and unforeseen expenses. 

Jonathan will participate in presentations about long-term lease planning and restructuring, as well as hidden items that can be found in many leases. Both topics often have big ticket ramifications for the long term cost of a lease.  Buzz words such as “under supervision,” “recognition of landlord’s work abatements and credits,” will be explained and analyzed.  A mock negotiation session will also be featured.
