Unlike other economic downturns, the fallout from COVID-19 has impacted commercial landlords and tenants in a wide range of industries, all across the United States. As state and local governments continue to require business shutdowns, landlords and tenants will need to address both near term and long term leasing issues, including rent relief and/or rent repayment, forbearance and lease terminations. For companies looking to resume operations, they will also be faced with physical modification requirements in order to comply with social distancing guidelines. Brownstein has formed a Lease Triage team to help both landlords and tenants determine the best course of action in this uncertain time. Our team is comprised of attorneys with significant experience representing commercial landlords and tenants in both office and retail leases, and with a comprehensive understanding of the marketplace.
