FAQs

Commercial leases for franchisees can be very complex. That’s why we work hard to make the terms of the contracts beneficial for our clients and why we make ourselves available to answer our clients’ questions. If you have any questions or concerns about the lease review process, we encourage you to call or email right away. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Do you really do all this work for your retainer only?

Yes, really. We charge a flat rate so that our clients do not have to worry about their attorney being on the clock. We want them to feel comfortable calling us with questions about the lease negotiation process without worrying about incurring additional charges. Our goal is to help new franchisees in the Los Angeles area quickly and easily navigate the leasing process, and we believe that working for the retainer facilitates this.

Are you as good at this as my fellow franchisee says?

Definitely. Commercial lease review and revision is the area of our expertise. We have been working in this field since 1978, and our knowledge of commercial leasing law and practices is vast. We specialize in turning leases, which always initially heavily favor the landlord, into a document that equally protects the interests of both parties. Most other attorneys will take weeks to do what we can do in less than 48 hours, and our work will be much more thorough, detailed, and beneficial to your interests.

Why didn’t I find you before I did my last lease with my business attorney who knew nothing about commercial leases?

You’re not alone. Most people don’t realize that their business attorneys are not specialists in negotiating commercial leases, and so they rack up huge legal bills as their attorney charges them their standard hourly wage. However, now you know, so you can save money and get better service while negotiating your next lease.
