At Nolo, we pride ourselves on giving you all the tools and information you need to take your legal matters into your own hands. There are some areas though, where having an experienced attorney really is worth the cost, and negotiating a commercial lease is one of those areas. While you may be able to negotiate a "good enough" lease on your own, there are so many considerations that you can miss (or that we haven't even thought of) in a particular building that having an attorney looking out for you is invaluable.
In this section, we offer some guidance on finding and choosing an attorney, what you should expect from your lawyer and when to begin including your attorney in negotiations.
