Commercial Landlord-Tenant Disputes
A properly written commercial lease can reduce the likelihood of landlord-tenant litigation. Unfortunately, a well-prepared lease doesn't guarantee that you won’t run into any legal disputes. If such a dispute does arise, it's in your best interest to work with a knowledgeable commercial real estate attorney. Getting legal advice as soon as possible can reduce your expense and time by eliminating the need to pursue litigation.
When landlord and tenant disputes cannot be reached by agreement, litigation may be necessary. In some instances, the case will take the form of a breach of contract, in which one party asserts that the other has breached the terms of a lease. In cases such as these, it's also common for counterclaims to be asserted, with both parties alleging breaches. Litigation regarding a commercial lease can be very complicated and disruptive to a party's business operations.
With several years of experience in commercial landlord and tenant law, the commercial real estate attorneys at Mitchell Nachtigal Law understand how important it is that you have knowledgeable representation and guidance. A commercial real estate attorney can represent your interests, assess your options, and argue effectively on your behalf. The right commercial real estate attorney can make all the difference between a business that's thriving and one that stalled and losing money.
Commercial Unlawful Detainer Proceedings
An unlawful detainer action provides expedited relief for a commercial landlord who is seeking to evict a tenant. Our attorneys provide effective and efficient representation and preparation throughout the duration of unlawful detainer actions. While unlawful detainer proceedings can be very complex, often involving strict notice requirements and filing deadlines, our attorneys can manage these proceedings from start to finish efficiently and quickly.
Construction Contract Disputes
A contract is the cornerstone of any construction project. Many projects will require a party to enter into multiple construction contracts that involve several different subcontractors who are providing many types of services in order for the project to be completed. If one entity fails in the chain of services or goods it can throw off an entire project.
When work isn't provided according to contract terms, disputes can arise. There’s almost no end to the types of disputes that can occur, including defective work, the scope of work, change orders, and delays.
