BestBreakfast post-release dedicated to the development of the restaurant industry in St. Petersburg
On November 30, the annual BestBreakfast was held, dedicated to the development of the restaurant industry in St. Petersburg.
Igor Gushchev, Senior Partner of Duvernoix Legal, spoke at the event and talked about possible legal nuances for restaurants.
In the current situation, in addition to economic risks, restaurateurs have to predict possible legal risks. “Today we recommend that you pay special attention to the possibility of introducing a reduction in the rental rate into the lease agreement for the period of closing the restaurant for objective and independent reasons, to pay close attention to the section of the agreement on force majeure circumstances, and in addition, it is important to provide for the possibility of early termination in the long-term agreement, for example, with a reasonable notice period for its termination,” the expert concludes.
