LEASE LITIGATION LAWYER [exclusive to Alberta]

Unresolved commercial lease disputes that move to court litigation can be particularly challenging for business tenants / lessees, given that the landlords / lessors tend to have considerably more financial resources to fund the legal costs associated with battling out the dispute in court.

When representing tenants / lessees, default and other rent-related court proceedings are far too often bottomless money pits with little hope of success, for the stark reality is that lease agreements are drafted to grossly favour the landlord / lessor, that litigaton is a further drain on one's finances, given how strict the lease agreements tend to be and the sizeable legal fees associated with protracted litigation in court proceedings. When the litigation is not rent related, but resulting from a breach of the other terms of the lease agreement, the prospects of litigation can prove significantly better, yet as always much will be dependent upon the actual facts at issue and the extent to which the landlord / lessor wishes to pursue the litigation (whether they are asserting a breach against the tenant / lessee or they are defending themselves against a purported breach).

When representing landlords / lessors in court litigation, the challenge is not merely about getting a positive verdict from the court, but optimizing one's recovery from the default or breach of the tenant / lessee and thereby minimizing the financial losses that arise from such scenarios. For when a landlord or lessor goes to court, it tends to be a damage control scenario, from which they is little positive to be gained, other than putting the particular matter behind oneself and moving forward.
