Having braved the cruelest year in modern history, New York City is waking up. For the bold business, the time is now to find new space with favorable terms. Companies of all shapes and sizes, from retail stores and professional offices to restaurants, bars, and night-life venues, can capitalize on lower rent and landlord incentives.

Despite the multitude of promising opportunities, there is much to consider before rushing into a new lease. As COVID made painstakingly clear, having a well-drafted, forward-thinking lease can make or break a business.

At Bergstein, Flynn & Knowlton, we use the lessons learned from the last year to help our clients better equip themselves for the unexpected. That means understanding our clients’ businesses. We use that understanding to establish a holistic approach to commercial leases and do far more than just checking the proverbial list. We ensure that the lease supports the client’s short and long-term business goals. We take pride in our legal experience and acumen and our collaborative, creative approach to problem-solving. Above all else, we place a premium on effective communication as the means to arm our clients with the tools to protect themselves going forward. We strive to protect your interests and help you understand how the final product will do so.
