Getting To 'Yes' When Negotiating a Lease Renewal

A client called me recently with a dilemma. She has operated a successful retail business in the same location for 16 years. She believes that the location is important for her business and has contributed to her success. However, her new landlord had presented her with a new lease. The lease required annual rent increases — increases which my client knew would immediately hinder the business' financial health, and at a time when she could least afford it. She didn't think her new landlord was open to what she needed to accomplish, so she called me.
