Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, getting legal help to negotiate your lease is essential.  If you are a landlord, you want to make sure that your lease will protect the return on investment that you anticipated when you decided to lease your real estate.   Furthermore, you want to be sure that your tenant cannot endanger your property or your other tenants with a risky operation.

If you are a tenant, you want to make sure that your leased real estate can provide you with a good place to conduct your business for your employees and your customers.  Just as importantly, you want to make sure that you are not saddled with unexpected costs.  The lease you sign is almost always up for negotiation.  Much depends on your negotiating position, but it is frequently possible to gain valuable concessions on legal obligations that could save your business tens of thousands of dollars over the term of your lease.
