About the PLI Commercial Real Estate Institute:

Commercial real estate fundamentals (rents, vacancy rates and development activity), although slow, are visibly recovering with REITs outperforming other asset classes. Practitioners with a broad skill set will find it easier to achieve and maintain a viable real estate practice in this environment, given the general economy’s downward pressures on tenant retention, rental growth, development revenue, refinancing and asset values. This program helps practicing attorneys enhance traditional transactional skills, and develop workout and enforcement skills, so that they can help their clients regain their footing more quickly.
