COVID-19: Real Estate Leasing Resource Page for Connecticut & New York

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, both landlords and tenants are struggling to deal with the myriad of issues arising under their leases.  We intend to address these issues in summary fashion as it relates to Connecticut and New York leasing law, and will provide strategic analysis of key issues affecting both landlords and tenants during this uncertain and tumultuous time.  Issues affecting office leasing, retail leasing and industrial/warehouse leasing will be addressed, as each leasing sector has its own specific and unique obstacles and benefits in this environment.

These are just a few considerations related to leasing in the COVID-19 crisis, and analysis of these issues requires particular attention to the express terms of the lease and the facts of the leasing relationship.  Shipman & Goodwin attorneys possess the knowledge and experience needed to help landlords and tenants navigate leases with functional and pragmatic solutions during these uncertain times.
