As a full-service provider of real estate legal services, we represent buyers, sellers, investors, developers, general contractors, and sub-contractors in commercial transactions and litigated disputes.

Commercial Leasing – Illinois Landlord-Tenant Law

Commercial leases are relatively lengthy and complicated because they account for a significant portion of business overhead. Mr. Arendt understands the unique issues involved in commercial lease relationships and applies this insight when negotiating, drafting, and litigating commercial lease disputes. Breach of contract disputes that arise from a commercial lease often involve issues like conflicting interpretations of lease terms, build out conditions, non-payment of rent, violation of lease conditions, and changes in conditions and circumstances that adversely impact a business. Our Cook County Commercial Lease Law Firm represents both landlords and tenants in commercial lease evictions.
