This presentation is a "Nuts and Bolts" approach to proper listing and commission agreements, use of purchase and sale agreement and lease language to protect a broker's right to present and future commissions, the use of commercial broker lien rights where necessary, and navigating the troubled waters in being retained by a party in bankruptcy for brokerage services. 

Mr. Hochman had played an instrumental role in the drafting, lobbying, support of, and testimony in state legislatures in support of broker lien laws, MO and KS included. His 40 years of representing brokers in court, helping them to get paid and to defend their conduct, makes him most qualified to speak on this topic. His brokerage clients include large national, regional, and local commercial brokerage firms. He speaks and teaches in many settings, from law schools to undergraduate and graduate courses in universities, to brokerage boards and organizations.
