Our attorneys take pride in understanding our client’s objectives and pay close attention to the minor details. Ultimately, Berlin Patten Ebling’s personalized strategy will help our legal team negotiate, leverage and draft applicable terms into your lease.

Commercial Landlord-tenant Disputes

Legal disputes can arise from disagreements, regardless of the care taken in drafting a commercial lease. At Berlin Patten Ebling, our commercial real estate lawyers represent landlords and tenants in various disputes.

There are significant differences between laws regulating residential landlord-tenant relationships and agreements between rental property owners and business tenants. Berlin Patten Ebling’s law offices have extensive expertise in both areas of real estate law. Our Commercial Real estate attorneys – and entire legal team – have a long track record of success litigating on behalf of landlords and tenants to subtenants and property managers.

Berlin Patten Ebling’s attorneys represent institutional and private lenders, and our services apply to the smallest private loans and the most complex commercial loans. In addition, our law firm handles many transactions for lenders – VA loans, FHA loans, SBA loans (both 504 and 7a), and nongovernment-backed loans. At Berlin Patten Ebling, we’re committed to establishing your goals up front, answering your questions, and keeping you informed with every step of your case.
