TOPIC: What’s Next?! Asserting Lease Rights When You Close Stores for COVID-19

WHEN: Wednesday, March 25, 2020, at 2:00 PM EDT


Scores of retailers have closed stores, reduced hours, changed business models overnight, and continue to generally mull how to deal with employee and customer safety and health issues. Governments are imposing a patchwork of new rules and restrictions that directly impact your ability to do business.

In “What’s Next?! Retailers’ rights when you close stores for COVID-19” two experienced retail practitioners who represent tenants will discuss (1) the seldom-used legal principles that are rearing their head in these unprecedented circumstances, (2) strategies for dealing with landlords who are unlikely to roll over when tenants refuse to pay rent and expenses, and (3) the steps to take now to maximize the protection of tenants’ rights.

Registration for this event is CLOSED
