So you know what to expect, here is a clip of James Styles. James is answering the questions: Who is calling the shots over post-pandemic '54 Act lease renewals? Are "Covid clauses" suspending rents, short term leases and break clauses the new normal?

On-demand Programme

  1. Break clauses

  2. CVAs

    What is the potential for landlords to challenge CVAs for abuse of process and inequitable treatment of creditors?

  5. Termination

    With tenants seeking reduced rents, how can you gain an edge for clients when drafting and serving s.25 and s.26 notices?

    Answered by: Caroline Shea QC of Falcon Chambers

    Caroline is “one of the brightest barristers out there.” "She tells it how she sees it, doesn’t sit on the fence and comes up with technically excellent and commercially astute points."

  6. Renewals

    Who is calling the shots when it comes to post pandemic ’54 Act lease renewals?

    Are “Covid clauses” suspending rents, short term leases and break clauses the new normal?

    Answered by: James Styles of Stephenson Harwood

    James is “immensely experienced, a great communicator and at the forefront of developments.” He is actively advising household name clients on all aspects of real estate law.

  7. Forfeiture

    How will the judicial approach to forfeiture change once the temporary Coronavirus measure is lifted?

    Where will the challenges come from?

    Answered by: Andrew Walker QC of Maitland Chambers
