Successful Commercial Tenant Representation

Philadelphia real estate lawyer, Thomas Kenny, represented three commercial tenants today in Philadelphia Landlord/Tenant Court against our clients’ landlord. The stakes were very high, with the first tenant being sued for $233,534.69. Mr. Kenny won a judgment for our first client and gained a $15,000 judgment on a counter claim. The second tenant was being sued for $243,001.63. Mr. Kenny won a judgment for our second client as well, and won a counterclaim for $2,952.31. The third tenant was being sued for $103,608.81 and $35,729.07, respectively, and the landlord was only able to recover $29,508.65 and $9,152.99, respectively. The final scorecard reads: the landlord tried to get $615,874.20 in inappropriate fees and only received $38,661.64 in results. Not to mention the fact that the tenants won an additional $17,952.31, which comes out to a savings of $595,164.87. Commercial landlords owe a duty to draft a correct lease and impose only those charges that are lawful and within the language of the lease. When the landlord doesn’t follow the rules, then results like this can happen. It is important to have vigilant representation like real estate lawyer Thomas Kenny when drafting or litigating a commercial lease. Results always count in the business world.
