Profile

Jörg Weißker advises and represents both landlords and tenants in all matters of tenancy and lease law.

Jörg Weißker has comprehensive experience and particular expertise in drafting and negotiating lease contracts. His clients often call on him already during the project development phase to support the preleasing process. Jörg Weißker regularly advises his clients on contracts involving leases of entire, often complex properties as well as retail assets such as local shopping centres or fitness and wellness studios.

Another focus of his practice is the termination of leases, in particular based on the lessor’s requirement to use the property for his own needs or to enable appropriate commercial use of the property.

Jörg Weißker is also an experienced litigator; he enjoys enforcing and defending claims in court on behalf of his clients.
