Join Arthur Yermash, Partner and Corporate Counsel at CMM, in conjunction with the Stony Brook Small Business Development Center, as he presents a discussion on ways to renegotiate your commercial lease agreement in these rising inflation times. At CMM, Arthur leads our robust commercial leasing practice, where he developed the strategy for the renegotiation of nearly 1,000 commercial leases nationwide for a major retailer at breakneck speed.

In this presentation, Arthur will discuss rent escalation provisions in your commercial lease agreement, preemptively minimizing disputes and non-payment for commercial landlords and business risk for commercial tenants. He will also address the four common commercial lease rent structures, which are important to think about these in the context of periods of high inflation:

  • Fixed Increases
  • Pass-Through Escalation
  • Direct Operating Cost Escalation
  • Indexed/Variable Escalation
