    Clarity and mutual understanding are the cornerstones of a successful attorney/client relationship. That is why I spell out in writing (by way of an engagement agreement signed by both of us) the work I will do for you and the total cost.

Legal Answers
42 Questions Answered
Q. I want to close my business. It was established as a partnership. Who should we call to help do this correctly?
A: I think you should work with your certified public accountant and he may have to work with your partners’ accountants. It would be best if each partner had his own accountant, as there will be issues that all partners (such as valuations) would have to agree to.
Q. Taking a name?
A: This is a question of Montana law, not Pennsylvania law. Most likely, you will have to get the permission of the current owner of the name to use their name. Under Pennsylvania law, a person or company does not acquire any intellectual property rights in the registered name of a company, but the law may be different In Montana. In any event, as far as I know no Secretary of State permits the registration of a name that is confusingly similar to another existing registered name.
Q. Pennsylvania: Can a landlord force you to sign a new lease after signing the lease renewal request three months earlier?
A: It may sound as though the lease renewal request document limits the changes that could be made to the actual lease renewal, however, a definitive answer can’t be given unless the existing lease, the lease renewal request, the proposed new lease, and any interim correspondence between you and the landlord is read and analyzed by an attorney, and there may still be ambiguities after such an analysis. Here are just a few of the items that would need to be considered by the attorney. The fact that the term “renewal” as opposed to an “extension” may be of some significance. A “renewal” is a “novation” (meaning “new”agreement), while an “extension” is a continuation of a existing agreement. It would be more likely that a renewal would have more changes than an extension. The “lease renewal request“ itself may not be binding on either party, especially in light of the fact that it wasn’t called a “contract” or “agreement”. The underlying existing lease may contain provisions which may affect a renewal or extension of it. You don’t say whether the lease renewal request or the proposed lease said anything about a change in the rent or not do you describe the type of changes between the existing lease and the proposed lease. It’s possible the changes may be necessary to comply with new ordinances or changes in rules or regulations which affect the entire rental development. I don’t know. And I could go on about the many other aspects of the documents the attorney would have to consider to make a determination as to whether the proposed lease complies with the landlord’s obligations under the lease renewal request.
