Navigating the Recession: What Companies Need to Consider Today - Part IV: Real Estate
Tuesday, February 24, 2009
Real estate forms an integral part of many corporate businesses and should be a focal point of any properly formulated strategy. In a financial landscape without precedent, the ability to save costs, increase flexibility and reduce or manage potential liabilities is now of even more importance to businesses attempting to maximize and channel resources into their core business products. In this webinar, we offer techniques that maximize tenant flexibility and cost controls, while allowing landlords to benefit from strategies that offer increased asset value over the longer term. Leonard Rosenberg and Lisa O'Keefe, partners in our Real Estate practice, will host this presentation.
