Our business attorneys offer residential and commercial lease reviews.


Do you have an important contract to sign? Are you concerned about the fine print in your residential or commercial lease? A well-drafted contract can secure important rights for you, and an overlooked provision can leave you exposed to danger. Because of their importance to your business, you should have these contracts reviewed by a business attorney who knows how to protect your interests. A capable business lawyer will not only be able to explain to you what your rights and obligations are under each contract, but they will also negotiate with the other party if a contract presents intolerable obstacles or threatens your key interests. Ensuring that you have a favorable contract from the beginning can help you avoid future disputes and keep your business running smoothly. At Northwest Business Law Group, we are here to help. We can guide you through your important business contracts and help you ensure they are consistent with your objectives.


Once you find the location for your home or business, do not just jump straight into signing a lease. There may be terms worth negotiating, and there may be clauses that will add to your monthly expenses. Get a commercial or residential lease review from a qualified business attorney. They will make sure you understand what you are getting in to and act as the negotiator to get you the best contract possible. Some of the items they will read through or even add include clauses specifying:

  • 100% Satisfaction with Communication
         Eric helped represent me with a very large lawsuit that was brought against me. 100% satisfaction with communication. It was timely; it was appropriate; it was insightful, thoughtful. From beginning to end, it was very clear that my legal counsel, Eric Helmy was by far the better warrior, so to speak, the intellectually, strategically, and we clearly outthought the opposition from beginning to end, and I don’t think they knew what hit them. The opposition didn’t have any choice but to really retreat and drop the suit, so I was very satisfied.

  • He'll Respond to Me When I Need Him.
         …I believe my law case never would have got off the ground without Eric’s attention to what was happening to me. I’m an excavator, in the tough times that have come along, there’s been several instances where the big developers think they’re not going to pay me, and I feel like they’re trying to [take advantage of] me. I can call Eric,…and he’ll come down and go sit in a meeting with me and all these big developers are writing checks before we’re getting up and leaving. …It’s nice to know that I have him on retainer, and he’ll respond for me when I need him. That’s the personal service you’ll get with him…

  • We Left With Important Information and a Plan
         Our first meeting with Eric was very helpful. We left with important information and a plan, and now we have our own corporation! Eric was invaluable in the writing of our bylaws and in advising our business setup. He also had great insights into owning a business in the Northwest. Having him on our company’s side makes us feel ready for the legal hurdles we will face as our business grows.
    Jaclyn Stewart CEO of Jurevicious Studios
  • We are Very Pleased
         …We’ve worked with Eric on two different contract matters and [have] been very, very pleased with his advice and all the support he’s provided to members of our organization…We were really, really pleased with the quality of work Eric delivered, all the due diligence he performed, the advice he gave to the members of our staff…We would certainly recommend Eric, and we would hope to work with him again.
