Over the years I have written and spoken about an area of law which I am very familiar with: commercial leasing.

I have pulled together the various kernels of wisdom on this site related to commercial leasing. Click on any of the links below to read and/or listen and, of course, if you have questions, feel free to contact me to discuss.
