Mark Shapiro and David Gunther co-authored an article published in the Real Estate Supplement of the New Jersey Law Journal on October 5, 2015. The article, “The Lease Rider: An Essential Tool for Franchisors”, focuses on the enforcement of retail lease assignment provisions in favor of franchisors. Franchise systems work hard to identify great sites and then to control the location, by assignment of the lease agreement, if the tenant/franchisee is terminated or otherwise leaves the franchise system. The article also talks about how NJ courts analyze these lease clauses or riders; how they need to read to be enforceable, and whether the franchisor needs to be a party to the lease?
