LIVE REPLAY: Parking: Special Issues in Commercial Leases

$75.00

The right of tenants – and their employees and customers – to park can be one of the most important elements of office and retail leases.  Physical space is often sparse and expensive, making parking spots even more dear.

Mother Nature & Leases: Drafting Issues to Protect Against Storm & Other Damage

$75.00

As extreme weather becomes more common, landlords and tenants are spending more time with overlooked lease provisions on weather-related damage.  When a weather or other “Act of God” event occurs, the tenants often have a wider array of remedies, including sometimes termination of the lease, and landlord’s see their risk (and thereby their costs) increase substantially.  As the probability of these events become less than trivial, it’s important reassess whether “boiler-plate” provisions still make economic and risk-management sense. This program will provide you with a real-world guide to drafting and reviewing weather-related and other force majeure provisions in commercial leases.   Intricacies of force majeure clauses in leases Termination rights – triggers for landlords and tenants Economic concessions – rent abatement and other financial considerations Duty of landlord to restore, rights of tenant to access property & construction issues Practical, timely and cost-effective assertion of rights   Speaker: Richard R. Goldberg is a retired partner, resident in the Philadelphia office of Ballard Spahr, LLP, where he established an extensive real estate practice, including development, financing, leasing, and acquisition.  Earlier in his career, he served as vice president and associate general counsel of The Rouse Company for 23 years.  He is past president of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers, past chair of the Anglo-American Real Property Institute, and past chair of the International Council of Shopping Centers Law Conference.  Mr. Goldberg is currently a Fellow of the American College of Mortgage Attorneys and is a member of the American Law Institute.  Mr. Goldberg received his B.A. from Pennsylvania State University and his LL.B. from the University of Maryland School of Law.

Appraisals in Commercial Real Estate Finance & Development

$75.00

Appraisals are part and parcel of every major realistic transaction.  Lenders will not loan without an appraisal.  Loan-to-value ratios are measured against the appraisal.  Investors will not invest without an appraisal.Appraisals are not set-piece documents, however; they involve a multiplicity of valuation metrics and different appraisers looking at the same property can and do generate widely varying valuations.  Because of their centrality to real estate transactions, understanding their structure and content is essential.  This program will provide you with a real-world guide to how appraisals are prepared and used in commercial real estate, their traps, and how they are incorporated into transactional documents.   Use of appraisals in obtaining funding for development projects and acquisitions Ensuring appraisals are prepared according to standards – and fraud risks if they are not Integrating appraisals in underlying operative documents What lawyers should look for in appraisals provided to clients – and how to spot red flags   Speakers: Anthony Licata is a partner in the Chicago office of Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, where he formerly chaired the firm’s real estate practice.  He has an extensive practice focusing on major commercial real estate transactions, including finance, development, leasing, and land use.  He formerly served as an adjunct professor at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and at the Illinois Institute of Technology.  Mr. Licata received his B.S., summa cum laude, from MacMurray College and his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School.

LIVE REPLAY: Subtenants in Commercial Leasing: How to Protect Your Client

$75.00

Subleases are by their very nature filled with substantial risk.  A sub-tenant agrees to take space – office, retail, or industrial – from a sub-landlord, pay the sub-landlord rent, and perform certain services. But without between the sub-tenant and the senior landlord, the sub-tenant has no rights to assert against the senior landlord even though the sub-tenant’s use of the space may depend on the actions of the senior landlord.  This sub-tenant is also at substantial risk of losing the space if either the senior or sub-landlord goes bankrupt. The relationship of these parties is highly complex. This program will provide you with a practical guide protecting subtenants in leasing.   Counseling sub-tenant clients about the range of risks in subleases How to read master leases to spot red flags for tenants Types of subleases – what works for bigger/smaller clients and spaces? Identifying master lease’s control of subleasing and sublease terms Master lease money provisions, use restrictions, attornment provisions, and termination Determining whether sublease risks outweigh the benefits   Speaker: Anthony Licata is a partner in the Chicago office of Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, where he formerly chaired the firm’s real estate practice.  He has an extensive practice focusing on major commercial real estate transactions, including finance, development, leasing, and land use.  He formerly served as an adjunct professor at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and at the Illinois Institute of Technology.  Mr. Licata received his B.S., summa cum laude, from MacMurray College and his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School.
