Lease and Tenancy Disputes

Whether you are a landlord in a commercial lease dispute or a tenant, your business relies on certainty and the effective resolution of lease issues. Cook Roberts LLP’s litigators can help you with all manner of lease dispute, from negotiating rent on renewal, to litigating breaches of the lease, termination, and pursuing current or former tenants for unpaid rent.

If you are a residential landlord, dealing with difficult tenants is no less challenging. The Residential Tenancy Act can be a minefield of process and procedure, and Cook Roberts LLP’s litigators can guide you through that process, whether “behind-the-scenes” as advisors and consultants, or fully representing you before an arbitrator at a dispute resolution hearing.
