The main legal meeting of shopping centers in Latin America was a success. The convention was held last week in Lima, Peru, and was attended by more than 50 lawyers of the region.
The Commercial Real Estate Law Forum, which was organized by MB Abogados, was attended by the most prestigious law firms of the region, such as, Gómez Pinzón from Colombia, Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enríquez from México, Carey from Chile and Ferrer Abogados from Uruguay, and by in-house counsels of the main shopping centers operators of the region, such as: Jockey Plaza from Perú, Falabella from Chile and CCLA from Argentina.
The event was an instance to review the scope and opinions in matters such as: evolution of lease negotiations and greater requirements existing today on this regard; commercial alliances between landlords and department stores, supermarkets, movie theaters or fast fashion stores; controversial clauses in lease agreement, among others.
“In a very challenging context and of deep changes as to consumption trends of shopping centers, legal matters become a key aspect, such as the legal framework necessary for controversial issues that are currently negotiated in lease agreements” indicated Ignacio Bolelli, one of MB Abogados founding partners who participated as moderator and speaker in the forum.
On the side of MB Abogados, the forum was attended by partners Ignacio Bolelli, Carolina Menichetti and Benjamín Salas, and by senior attorneys Sybil O’Reilly and Cristóbal Silva.
