The Target Fall-Out: What New Lessons Have We Learned Along the Way?

Lisa Borsook, Executive Partner of WeirFoulds LLP, will be a panelist at the 2016 Real Estate Strategy & Leasing Conference for this panel session.

Description
The Canadian retail landscape proves over and over again to be highly competitive. A casualty of this strong ongoing competition was the 2015 closure of Target following it's brief entry into Canada. If landlords had to do the leases all over again, what would they do differently – if anything? What are the key takeaways and how can landlords protect themselves in the future? New lessons continue to come to light in the aftermath of the closure. What are the latest realizations we have seen due to this unlikely outcome?
