Lease Negotiation and Mediation

Senator Ben Allen and attorneys from the law firm of Pettit Kohn Ingrassia Lutz & Dolin led a webinar for Chamber members to discuss the status of the eviction moratorium, and resources available to commercial and residential landlords and tenants. You can view the webinar in its entirety here.

Pettit Kohn has partnered with the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce to provide discounted mediation services to the Chamber’s commercial landlords and tenants that have been impacted by COVID-19, specifically as it relates to the commercial eviction moratorium and related rent repayment plans.

The benefits of participating in mediation include preserving tenancy and occupancy; saving time and money; allowing the parties to have full participation in decisions; encouraging creative solutions; and helping to cultivate peaceful relationships.
