New Edition of Friedman on Leases


Friedman on Leases has been updated in its new Sixth Edition. Building on Milton R. Friedman’s comprehensive work, Andrew R. Berman (Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP), author of the new edition, has updated this time-tested treatise so that it continues to provide not only the foundational knowledge required by novice practitioners, but also analysis of and insight into the most current and relevant developments facing seasoned practitioners in the commercial real estate field. The authoritative discussions of issues, commentary on numerous case decisions, and sample lease clauses and agreements help you to:

• Draft, negotiate, and amend every essential document involved in commercial leasing
• Modify lease provisions for the full variety of landlord-tenant arrangements
• Anticipate and resolve problematic transaction developments
• Avoid drafting errors, including omissions, ambiguities, and fatal terminology
• Understand and deal with difficult issues specific to assignments, subletting, renewals, take-over leases, percentage leases, and other challenging aspects of commercial leasing
• Proceed wisely in those leasing areas with divided judicial authority or divergent state statutes

This essential title is available on PLI PLUS, our online research database. If you’d like to order a print copy, please email or call (877-900-5291) us.
