This show is a primer for landlords, tenants, property managers, lease administrators and anyone else who deals with commercial leases and the insurance provisions typically found in those leases. In nearly 40 years of lease negotiations and litigation, I’ve found that it’s the insurance provisions in leases that are the least negotiated and understood provisions in commercial leases. Even the attorneys often say “it’s a typical insurance provision.” But what do those insurance provisions really mean? Who do they protect and who might they harm? Once the lease is signed, is there anything the landlord or tenant need to do to ensure that the insurance provisions are fully enforceable and effective? Does a landlord really need a certificate of insurance from the tenant’s insurance carrier? What, if any, benefit does the landlord get from being named an additional insured? Featured Guests

This is a podcast designed to address the basic issues that are encountered when negotiating a commercial lease. In this economic climate, prospective tenants have a significant amount of leverage. Therefore, it is important that they use that to their advantage. And the issues extend beyond the rental amount.
Show Description View the full show description and guest bios at our website. This radio show is based upon Ira Meislik’s Ruminations blog posting ”Can We Tamp Down The Document Negotiating Fire And Just Get The Deal Done?” Is there some way that we can get past a lot of the negotiating positioning and “beeline” it straight to the agreement or we must always do the “dog and pony show”? This will be a point/counter-point type of discussion with Ira Mei
Decision Allowing BP to Bid on New Oil Contracts Signals Profits More Important Than Safety Specal Guest: Tyson Slocum, Director, Public Citizen’s Energy Program March 20, 2013 Can a company behind the biggest environmental catastrophe in the country’s history clean up its act in four months? Most people would say “absolutely not.” But, astoundingly, the Department of Interior (DOI) has said “yes.” Late last week, the DOI decided to allow BP – which behaved so badly that the federal government just four months ago suspended it from bidding on federal contracts – to participate in today’s lease auction. If the corporation’s suspension has not been lifted after the 90-day review of the auction, BP’s leases will be offered to the second-highest bidder. This puts pressure and unreasonable time constraints on the U.S. Environment Protection Agency to lift BP’s suspension from federal contracts. Allowing BP to bid is unacceptable. The purpose of this type of suspension – which was put in place in November after a BP-affiliated company pleaded guilty to criminal charges in connection with the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster – is to protect taxpayers from negligent and criminal contractors. By blatantly disregarding the intent, the government is turning what should be an effective tool to protect taxpayers into a paper tiger.

Foreigners owning huge tracts of land, whose lease is about to expire, are likely to lose their prized assets as the government starts to enforce the law on land ownership. The move will affect multinationals and individuals with tea, sisal and coffee estates in some of the most arable lands in the country on 99-year leases. Lands Minister James Orengo said they were working on a law that would allow the government to review the expiring leases, especially those held for speculative purposes.
