Commercial Leases

Of all of the legal documents in the purchase and sale of a business, none have the long-term ramifications of the lease. The value of your business is largely determined by its leasehold commitments: the highest profit margin in the industry may be rendered worthless if the landlord can evict you, deny an assignment, or raise your rent without restriction. The lease defines and controls your relationship with the landlord for several years or decades, and it is the contract we are most requested to review years after the deal has been closed.

At Demakis Law Offices, P.C., we have decades of experience in negotiating, drafting and enforcing commercial leases. Through our work with large and successful national companies, we have the experience and training to handle negotiations with or for the largest commercial entities, including large shopping center owners. However, as a small, family owned business with many local business clients, we are very familiar with the issues relevant to small businesses and owners of residential rental property. This experience with businesses large and small gives us a perspective unlike many other law firms.
