Landlord/Tenant law involves the negotiation, drafting, execution and enforcement of commercial, industrial and residential leases, lease amendments, subleases, rules and regulations, personal guarantees, options and rights of first refusal.   Kitch firm attorneys focus on real estate litigation with expertise in all aspects of landlord/tenant law.  Kitch attorneys appear regularly in court and diligently handle all landlord/tenant matters.
