Business Lease Renewal - Law & Tactics Live at Your Desk
Whether you act for a landlord or tenant on lease renewal, getting the best deal for your client can be as much about tactics as the law.
Transactional lawyers and litigation lawyers can work together more effectively to get a better result.
This unique and interactive live broadcast session is led by two very experienced trainers, providing advice from two entirely different speaker viewpoints: Peta was a transactional property lawyer for more than 25 years, whilst Sarah was a property litigator. Each one's individual knowledge and experience usefully complements that of the other. Transactional property lawyers and litigators can benefit hugely from their long experience of working together, both in practice and when delivering courses, which enables them to provide a uniquely enjoyable, practical and useful experience for all attendees.
