Itkowitz  Presentation Description:  In this CLE presentation, Jay Itkowitz will examine the evolution of the “Good Guy Guaranty” as it is used in commercial leasing,  specifically how to learn what to bargain for and how to make sure you get it.  We will discuss how landlords can use the guaranty as a formidable bargaining chip during lease negotiations, how tenants must tread carefully when attempting to surrender the leased premises, and the snags and pitfalls that can complicate matters for counsel when a dispute leads to litigation and, eventually, enforcement of a judgment.
