The leasing of commercial spaces in New York City — such as those for business and corporate offices, flagship retailers, and restaurant venues, among many others — usually sees its fortune rise and fall with the economy. But never has it faced the profound changes brought about by the COVID pandemic, where companies are now leasing smaller commercial space as hybrid and flexible return-to-office policies endure and allow people to work and shop from home and online.

Michelle Axon ’14, an associate at Davis+Gilbert LLP, will discuss these trends and their implications; how real estate lawyers, in the face of these changes, are now advising their clients (both landlords and tenants) when negotiating important clauses and terms in commercial leases; and what the future may hold.
