Legal services provided to store tenants in shopping centres
Lease agreements concerning stores and premises in a shopping centre are extremely extensive and complicated. They are a combination of a number of legal mechanisms, which in an appropriate configuration create a huge advantage of a shopping centre over the tenant. This advantage can be eliminated to a certain extent to the benefit of the tenant. This can be done with the assistance of lawyers who know business reality of shopping centres and who have experience in the practical application of specific contractual clauses.
Our broad experience in the shopping centre market in Poland singles us out from other legal firms. As a consequence, we had a chance to visit and review a lot of shopping facilities in Poland and we know both their weaknesses and strengths. We can assess in advance the business consequences of decisions made by our Clients and present relevant recommendations to them.
Legal knowledge itself is insufficient in relations with shopping centres and must be combined with practice as far as technical and construction solutions, shared cost settlement methods and ever-changing practices of shopping centre management companies are concerned. We have all these competences due to our ongoing contact with the lease market.
We represent tenants in court disputes. We are experienced in drafting effective strategies for litigation against shopping centres. We handle disputes before common and arbitration courts across Poland. Since we are involved in many cases, we have our own unique base of court decisions in cases involving the tenants.
We assisted in the establishment of the first Polish association of tenants of premises in the shopping centres, which we are currently supporting with our professional knowledge. The association provides the tenants across Poland with active assistance.
We assist tenants with their day-to-day issues related to carrying on business in the shopping centre. We renegotiate the agreements and advise tenants which most optimum strategy they should choose.
We assist tenants in negotiations of lease agreements with shopping centres. This applies to both new and pending agreements and agreements planned to be extended. We advise the tenants to what aspects they should draw their attention and how to safeguard their interests in the future. We help assess potential risks and inform what practical threats may arise from contractual clauses which are usually neglected.
We are experienced in protecting the tenants’ rights when the enforcement proceedings are carried out by the shopping centre or court enforcement officer. We actively use the legal opportunities to defend the tenants by suspending the enforcement procedure, bringing an anti-enforcement action, bringing an action against defective actions taken by the court enforcement officer.
