Commercial property developers, owners and brokers know that the road to a successful real estate deal is not always a smooth highway, and some of the twists and turns are more easily handled than others. Obstacles that have frequently led to litigation can provide valuable lessons on how to avoid future bumps. Polsinelli's Real Estate Litigation attorneys will address common issues in the real estate industry that have led to litigation, and will advise on steps that can be taken in the negotiation, drafting and early dispute processes to ultimately avoid the courtroom.

This webinar will address:

  • Liquidated damages versus unenforceable penalties
  • Attorney fee provisions in real estate contracts and leases
  • Duty to mitigate, measure of damages
  • Specific performance of leases and contracts
  • Intricacies of complex real estate transactions that can create vulnerability to litigation
