Is a Lawyer Required in a Commercial Landlord-Tenant Dispute?
We would not recommend trying to represent yourself or your business in these types of situations. In fact, New York State courts might not even allow you to appear in court without an attorney when you are attempting to handle a commercial landlord-tenant dispute.
This is in your best interest. The risks of relying solely on your own knowledge can be too high here. If you want to protect your business and your assets, you need to have a lawyer who has experience dealing with these types of matters.
How Can a Commercial Landlord-Tenant Dispute Lawyer Help?
The attorneys at our law firm will do their best to help you settle just about any commercial landlord-tenant dispute. We can:
Translate contracts and claims: Many commercial disputes involve contracts and claims that use plenty of legal terminology. We can translate for you and make everything easier to understand.
Handle any counterclaims that arise: If you file a claim, your landlord or tenant might file a counterclaim. For example, a landlord starts a dispute over unpaid rent, so a tenant counters with a claim about unfulfilled maintenance or repair duties. Your attorney can handle anything else thrown at you during this process.
Use knowledge of local laws and regulations: Whether you are a property owner or a business owner, you probably do not know everything there is to know about zoning laws and building regulations. Our attorneys have that knowledge, and we can use it to help you settle your dispute.
Help you avoid disruption to your business: Your attorney can find the best way to handle any disputes while keeping your business operating. A big disruption to your business can cost you money and hurt your reputation. We can help you avoid such issues.
