My Legal career hasfocused on representing businesses (corporations and limited liability companies) as general outside counsel. In this capacity, I have drafted a broad range of legal documents as well as analyzed proposed agreements drafted by the other party's attorney to the agreement for the pupose of determining the risks to which my client would be exposed. I maintained the client's minute book if no one in-house was available for that task. Additionally, if rquested, I served as a general advisor to the client's executive offers and to its Board of Directors.

I help small business owners build and protect their dreams. I always thought that I would just be a litigator. Then I joined an intellectual property clinic in law school. We were helping nonprofits and small businesses reach their goals. I fell in love with the work and decided to open my own firm so I could keep helping them. When I decided to start Victrix Legal, I decided that it would be a modern law firm designed to serve professionals. It would be different from every other law firm. In my experience, my law firms are designed to promote inefficiency and reactionary lawyering. Because in most firms, you make more money when you spend more time on a project. And you lose money if your client doesn't get sued. In my opinion, that's a built-in conflict of interest. My firm is different. I use flat fees for most basic projects to keep costs predictable for you and incentivize efficiency. I offer long-term advisory plans and legal audits to prevent issues from happening. I want my clients to see me as their business partner, not just the guy they call when they are in trouble. If any of that interests you, please reach out to me. I offer free consultations. Let's set aside some time and talk about what your legal needs are.

Commercial Real Estate Legal Questions and Answers

Commercial Real Estate

Commercial Lease

Massachusetts

Asked on Apr 17, 2023

Can the tenant assign the lease to another business?

I am a business owner who recently signed a commercial lease for a retail space. I was recently approached by another business who is interested in taking over my lease, and I am wondering if I am able to assign the lease to them. I am looking to understand the legal implications of assigning the lease, as well as any other requirements or restrictions I should be aware of.

Joseph M.

Answered May 12, 2023

In Massachusetts, a commercial tenant can assign or sublet the unit to a third party - UNLESS there is a specific prohibition in the current lease. However, even if there is such a prohibition, it might still be worth speaking to the landlord about since it might be mutually beneficial.

Commercial Lease

Maryland

Asked on Apr 27, 2023

What are the notice requirements for terminating the lease?

I am a business owner who recently signed a commercial lease for a property. I am looking to terminate the lease but am unsure of the notice requirements I must adhere to in order to do so. I would like to know what the notice requirements are for terminating the lease so that I can ensure I do not breach the terms of the lease.

Michael C.

Answered Jun 1, 2023

The notice requirements for terminating a commercial lease in Maryland are going to vary depending on the specific terms of your lease agreement. Please read and refer to your lease. If your lease is month to month, then it's likely you'll have to provide at least 30 days notice. If your lease is for a longer term (6 to 12 months), it's likely you'll have to provide at least 90 days notice, and may need to pay damages for breach of the lease agreement.

Commercial Lease

Maryland

Asked on Apr 12, 2023

Can the tenant make alterations to the property?

I am a tenant of a commercial property and I am interested in making some alterations to the property. I understand that I will need the landlord's permission to make these changes, but I am unsure of what the landlord's policy is regarding tenant alterations and what the legal implications of making such changes might be. I am looking for clarification on the tenant's rights and obligations when making alterations to a commercial lease agreement.

O.T. W.

Answered Apr 14, 2023

Hello! There should be an alterations clause in your lease that speaks to what is or isn't allowed in your space. Your safest bet is to have your landlord review and sign a letter of consent for more substantial improvements (beyond paint, mounting items, etc.)

Commercial Lease

Maryland

Asked on Apr 20, 2023

Can the tenant make changes to the property's signage?

I am looking to rent a commercial property for my business and have recently come across a potential property. The lease agreement states that the tenant is not allowed to make any changes to the property's signage. I am interested in understanding if there are any exceptions to this rule and if the tenant can make changes to the signage.

Michael C.

Answered Jun 1, 2023

Standard commercial lease template includes language about the nature and extent of modifications tenants can make to a property. In this instance, there's no legal or regulatory exception that is going to protect you from a restriction in the lease. Your best bet is to negotiate directly with the landlord for a modification to the lease terms.

David H.

Answered Mar 18, 2022

Hello, my name is David hatch I am a Michigan license attorney. This question has several nuances to it. An investor is taking it over, it sounds like you're giving it to them but it's also being sold? That is unclear. It would be helpful to understand what type of indemnity the investor is seeking. It really depends upon the value of the property and the risk involved in the deal. Please let me know if you like additional assistance beyond this. I can help you out. Attorney Dave.
