  • Property and Leasing

I have recently started a small business and needed a retail lease to be reviewed. Initially I was anxious about getting legal advice because, as a small business, budgets are tight and legal advice was a luxury I was uncertain that I needed. However the service I received from Kristine and LV was nothing short of amazing. They responded to emails extraordinarily promptly (often outside of business hours), went through a 60-page lease with a thorough and comprehensive review within days and have made the process of entering a commercial lease far less stressful than it otherwise would have been. I am confident I am entering a lease that is fair and lawful. I can only sing their praise and cannot thank Kristine and the LV team enough.
