Commercial landlord-tenant law touches nearly every business in New Jersey. After all, every business needs space to operate, market, sell, or serve customers. This weighty reality requires that landlords, tenants, and their attorneys be familiar with the specifics of a commercial landlord-tenant relationship. This program, presented by Offit Kurman attorney Thomas Major, first explores the basic principles of commercial landlord-tenant law with an eye toward common lease provisions. With these basics established, the program moves to major claims and defenses in commercial landlord-tenant litigation. The course will then consider both the summary dispossession proceeding (a typical “landlord-tenant case”) and litigation in the Law Division. Mr. Major will conclude with a discussion of evidentiary considerations in taking a landlord-tenant case to trial.
Thomas J. Major, Esq., is a Principal at Offit Kurman. Thomas guides corporate and individual clients through an increasingly complex world. At heart, he's a trial lawyer. But, he still believes the best way to resolve conflict is to avoid it. When conflicts arrive, he vindicate his client's position with efficiency and clarity.
This was a great course. Easy to understand and it focused on basics, not fringe issues like many CLEs unfortunately do. Thomas was also really engaging.
Knowledgeable speaker, covered major issues, a great help.
