For the owner or operator of a store, restaurant or office in New York City, negotiating a favorable lease is often a critical factor in their business’s success. Similarly, owners of commercial real estate depend on the cash flow from the monthly rent payments they receive from tenants. For both landlords and tenants a clear and unambiguous lease agreement is essential. But even the most carefully negotiated lease can’t prevent every dispute that may arise.
At the law firm of Nadel & Ciarlo our lawyers have more than 20 years of experience representing commercial landlords and tenants in lease disputes and other litigation. We have handled thousands of cases involving rent payment disputes, eviction, termination and lease violations. We have represented building owners and property managers, as well as owners and operators of dental and medical offices, “mom and pop” stores and retailers of every description. We understand that every case is unique and every client has their own unique concerns and issues.
When lease disputes arise between a commercial landlord and tenant, we generally try first to negotiate a resolution without going to court. If the parties are able to resolve their differences amicably, it can save them a lot of time and avoid unnecessary distraction from running their business.
But if negotiations are not fruitful, we are fully prepared to go to court to protect our client’s interests. Our lawyers have litigated cases in federal, state and city courts. We are familiar with the full array of legal proceedings involved in real estate litigation including motions, injunctions, trials and hearings.
