Because facilities costs are often the second-largest expense item for most companies, (after payroll), it is crucial to make the most of your facilities lease negotiations. In this workshop, we will talk about the current state of the economy and specifically the current state of the real estate market in San Diego County and give you tools to use in your next lease transaction to save money, eliminate risk and get the concessions package that is optimal for your company. In addition, we will discuss strategies for underwriting risky landlords, the risks and benefits of subleasing, pitfalls in the tenant improvement process and upcoming changes in lease accounting rules and how those changes will impact leasing in the years to come. Registration and continental breakfast begins 7:30 a.m, or register online here.
