Your commercial tenant rights in
New York City are an important business asset.
Here’s how to protect them …

Dealing with commercial landlords in New York City is difficult under the best of conditions. A tough economy makes it even more challenging.

If you’re running a small business or are a self-employed professional, you can be vulnerable in dealing with your landlord. Commercial tenants do not have the same scope of protection in New York as residential leaseholders. That means you have to be exceptionally careful in protecting yourself. It’s best to avoid problems in the first place by having solid legal representation to support you.

That’s why you need an experienced Tenants’ lawyer, who has successfully helped commercial leaseholders in disputes with their landlords. For over 20 years, attorney Jeff McAdams has represented all kinds of tenants and has consistently obtained excellent results. In his Landlord Tenant practice, Jeff only defends tenants, and is completely dedicated to protecting their rights.

If you’re running a small business or professional practice,
you need aggressive protection of your legal interests…

Here’s an example of the affordable representation
Jeff McAdams can provide for you…

This case illustrates just a few of the issues Jeff effectively resolves for clients:

A psychologist leased a small suite of offices, and subleased one of them to another professional to help cover the cost of his own rent. There was a subsequent problem with sewage processing that impacted the building. It caused an unbearable stench, and adversely affected the usability of the premises. The landlord failed to promptly address and correct the problem, resulting in the client losing his subtenant. This imposed an overwhelming financial burden on the tenant, which escalated to $50,000 in back rent. The landlord sued for eviction and the balance due under the entire lease term.

Jeff immediately countered and raised defenses. The first one asserted that the defective conditions had reached sufficient magnitude to warrant cancellation of the lease. Secondly, that the landlord engaged in making malicious falsehoods to the subtenant, which amounted to tortious interference with the client’s contractual rights. Additionally, McAdams Law took procedural steps to ensure that the subtenant’s liability for her lease obligations remained intact. The outcome was that Jeff was able to negotiate a favorable settlement with the landlord for his client, releasing him from the lease and all but just 10% of the total debt, so he could easily relocate to new space.

Needless to say, the grateful client was very happy to have saved $45,000.
