Using a precedent form of lease may make drafting the lease easy, but do you know why particular wording is used or how it should be amended? If the other side makes an amendment, do you know the standard compromise position or whether you should accept their amendment? If not, then this live broadcast session is for you.

Aimed primarily at those who are relatively inexperienced at drafting and negotiating commercial leases, the course will focus entirely on drafting - both the initial drafting of clauses and the drafting of amendments to clauses - using numerous examples of the most tricky clauses in leases.
