Chamber-on-the-Go: Commercial Lease Assistance Roundtable

Entering into a commercial lease can be one of the most momentous choices that you make as a business owner. Whether you just renewed your commercial lease or you have never had one, join the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and the New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS) for a small business roundtable to share about your experiences navigating commercial leases and learn about how the Commercial Lease Assistance program can help businesses. The goals of the roundtable are to learn from business owners about the challenges that they are encountering related to commercial leases—from considering or planning for a lease to negotiating its terms and amending, renewing, or terminating it—and to connect business owners with attorneys for pro-bono, on-the-spot legal consultations.
