FIVE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED SIXTY-

                                                                              1



EIGHT AND 69/100 DOLLARS ($5,468.69) per month. If the Commencement Date is

Security Deposit to Landlord's successor in interest, whereupon Tenant shall 
release Landlord from liability for the return of the Security Deposit or any 
accounting therefor.

occurrence insuring against any and all liability of the insured with respect 
to the Premises or arising out of the maintenance, use or occupancy thereof,

                  ARTICLE VII: UTILITIES AND JANITORIAL SERVICE

       7.1 UTILITIES AND SERVICES.

              (a) Landlord shall furnish to the Premises during reasonable 
hours of generally recognized business days, as determined in Landlord's

its proportionate share of all electricity and natural gas used on the 
premises. The percentage of participation is determined by the square footage 
of the premises as compared to the total area of the Building. Tenant will 
not, without the written consent of Landlord, use any apparatus or device in 
the Premises, including without limitation electronic data processing

amount of electricity usually furnished or supplied for use of the Premises 
as a general business office space; nor connect any apparatus or device with 
electrical current except through existing electrical outlets in the Premises.

       7.3 METERS. If Tenant shall require water or electrical current in 
excess of that usually furnished or supplied for use of the Premises as 
GENERAL OFFICE, SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND OTHER LEGAL RELATED USES space, 
Tenant shall first procure the consent of Landlord for the use thereof, which 
consent Landlord shall not unreasonably delay or withhold. If Landlord 
consents, Landlord may calculate the cost of such service or may cause a 
water meter or electric current meter to be installed in the Premises, so as 
to measure the amount of water and electrical current consumed for any such 
other use. The cost of such meters and of installation, maintenance, and 
repair thereof shall be paid by Tenant, and Tenant shall pay Landlord 
promptly upon demand by Landlord for all such water and electrical current 
consumed as calculated by Landlord or as shown by the meters, at the rates

within the Premises at Tenant's sole cost and expense. If Tenant so improves 
the current electrical systems, Tenant shall also cause to be installed at 
its sole cost and expense an electrical submeter or other device in order to 
accurately have measured Tenant's electricity consumption. If Tenant does not 
contract directly with the appropriate utility, which Tenant may do at its 
sole option, then Landlord shall bill Tenant

                                                                              4

       8.1 USE. The Premises shall be used and occupied by Tenant as a 
GENERAL OFFICE, SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT AND OTHER LEGAL RELATED USES and for no 
other purpose without the prior written consent of Landlord. Tenant shall 
have access to the Building and the Premises 24 hours per day, 7 days per 
week.

       8.2 SUITABILITY. Tenant acknowledges that neither Landlord nor any 
agent of Landlord has made any representation or warranty with respect to the 
Premises or the Building or with respect to the suitability of either for the 
conduct of Tenant's business, nor has Landlord agreed to undertake any 
modification, alteration or improvement to the Premises except as provided in 
this Lease. The taking of possession of the Premises by Tenant shall 
conclusively establish that the Premises and the Building are at the date of 
possession in satisfactory condition. Landlord shall not be responsible for 
any latent defects or deficiencies in the construction of the Premises or the 
Building or any improvements or fixtures therein, unless Tenant shall, within 
one (1) year from the Commencement Date, provide Landlord with written notice 
which specifies in reasonable detail the nature and character of the defect 
or deficiency. Landlord shall, within ninety (90) days from the date of 
notice from Tenant, compete reasonable repairs and changes to eliminate such 
defects and deficiencies; provided, however, that if such repairs cannot be 
completed within ninety (90) days in the opinion of a registered architect or 
engineer appointed by Landlord, Landlord, at Landlord's election, may give 
notice to Tenant terminating this Lease as of the date specified in the 
notice, which date shall not be less than thirty (30) days after giving 
notice. This Lease shall continue in full force and effect during any period 
of repair; provided, however, that the rent shall be reduced by a 
proportionate reduction based upon the extent, if any, to which the defects 
or deficiencies interfere with the use and occupancy of Tenant. 
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Lease: 
              (a) Landlord at its sole cost and expense shall recarpet and 
repaint the Premises to landlord's building standard quality and design. 
Landlord shall also replace damaged ceiling tiles, replace lights as needed 
and clean light lens covers and replace damaged lens. 
              (b) To the best of Landlord's knowledge at the commencement of 
the Lease term the Premises comply with all regulations, local, state and 
federal laws, ordinances and codes, and the electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and 
roof system are in good working condition.

In the event of any breach of any of the foregoing warranties, Landlord shall 
promptly rectify the same at its sole cost and expense and shall indemnify, 
defend, and hold Tenant harmless from and against any damages, liability, 
suits, losses, claims, actions, costs or expense (including attorneys' and 
consultants' fees and costs) suffered by Tenant in connection with any such 
breach.

                                                                              5



       8.3 PROHIBITED USES.

              (a) Tenant shall not do or permit anything to be done in or 
about the Premises, nor bring or keep anything therein which will in any way 
increase the existing premium rate or affect any fire or other insurance upon 
the Building or any of the Building's contents, unless Tenant shall pay any 
increased premium as a result of such use or acts, or cause a cancellation of 
any insurance policy covering the Building or any part of the Building or any 
of the Building's contents, nor shall Tenant sell or permit to be kept, used 
or sold in or about the Premises any articles which may be prohibited by a 
standard form policy of fire insurance.

              (b) Tenant shall not do or permit anything to be done in or 
about the Premises which will in any way unreasonably obstruct or interfere 
with the rights of other tenants or occupants of the Building or injure or 
annoy them, or use or allow the Premises to be used for any unlawful or 
objectionable purpose, nor shall tenant cause, maintain or permit any 
nuisance in or about the Premises. Tenant shall not commit or suffer to be 
committed any waste in or upon the Premises.

              (c) Tenant shall not use the Premises or permit anything to be 
done in or about the Premises which will in any way conflict with any law, 
statute, ordinance or governmental rule or regulation or requirement of duly 
constituted public authorities now in force or which may hereafter be 
enacted, promulgated or created. Tenant shall, at Tenant's sole cost and 
expense, promptly comply with all laws, statutes, ordinances and governmental 
rules, regulations or requirements now in force or which may hereafter be in 
force and with the requirements of force or which may hereafter be in force 
and with the requirements of any board of fire underwriters or other similar 
body now or hereafter constituted relating to or affecting the use or 
occupancy of the Premises, excluding structural changes not relating to or 
affecting the use or occupancy of the Premises, or not related or afforded by 
Tenant's improvements or acts. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to 
the contrary contained in this Lease, Tenant shall not be responsible for 
compliance with any laws, codes, ordinances or other governmental directives 
where such compliance is not related specifically to Tenant's use and 
occupancy of the Premises. For example, if any governmental authority should 
require the Building or the Premises to be structurally strengthened against 
earthquake, or should require the removal of asbestos from the Premises and 
such measures are imposed as a general requirement applicable to all tenants 
rather than as a condition to Tenant's specific use or occupancy of the 
Premises, such work shall be performed by and at the sole cost of Landlord. 

                    ARTICLE IX: FIXTURES AND ALTERATIONS

       9.1 ALTERATIONS. Tenant shall not make any physical alterations in the 
Premises or any of the fixtures located therein or install or cause to be 
installed any trade fixtures, exterior signs, floor coverings, interior or 
exterior lighting, plumbing fixtures, shades or awnings or make any changes 
to the Premises or Building without first obtaining the written consent of

                                                                              6



Landlord, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Tenant shall present
to Landlord plans and specifications for the installation of any improvements or
fixtures at the time approval is sought from Landlord. Any physical change and
all rearrangements which are made by Tenant with the approval of Landlord shall
be made at Tenant's expense. Such alternations, decorations, additions and
improvements shall not be removed from the Premises during the term of this
Lease without the prior written consent of Landlord. Upon expiration of this
Lease all such alterations, decorations, additions and improvements shall at
once become the Property of landlord, without payment to Tenant. Notwithstanding
the provisions of Paragraph 9.1:
       (a) Tenant shall be entitled to make alterations, additions, improvements
and utility installations in or to the Premises, without the prior consent of
Landlord, so long as each of the same (i) that the total cost of any single
alterations, additions, improvements and utility installations do not exceed the
sum of $2,500 in cost, (ii) do not affect any structural or exterior portions of
the Building or adversely affect the Building electrical, plumbing or HVAC
systems, and (iii) Tenant will not permit mechanics' liens to be filed against
the Building or Premises, and if a lien is filed then the Tenant will remove
lien or post a bond for at lease 2-times the amount of the lien within ten (10)
days from written notice of Landlord.
       (b) Tenant shall not be required to remove any alterations, additions,
improvements or Utility Installations for which Tenant has obtained Landlord's
consent, unless Landlord has indicated at the time of granting such consent,
that such removal will be required at the end of the Lease term.
       (C) At the expiration, or at any time during the term of this Lease,
Tenant shall be entitled to remove, in addition to its furniture, trade
fixtures, and other personal property, any fixtures, alterations additions and
improvements including but not limited to any Tenant installed HVAC systems,
provided that Tenant repairs any damage caused by such removal.

       9.2 SIGNS, POSTERS, WINDOW COVERINGS ON PREMISES. Tenant shall not 
affix any signs, posters, window coverings, or other materials to the inside 
surface of the exterior windows of the premises, or to any glass partitions, 
if any, separating the Premises from the Common Areas of the building without 
first obtaining the written consent of Landlord.

       9.3 CONDITIONS AND LIMITATIONS. Landlord may impose as a condition to
granting any consent required by Section 9.1, such reasonable requirements,
restrictions and limitations as Landlord may deem necessary in Landlord's
reasonable discretion, and as agreed upon in Section 9.1, including without
limitation, the manner in which the work is done, the contractors by whom it is
performed, and the time during which the work is accomplished.

       9.4 CONTRACTORS AND MATERIALMEN. If any fixtures, alterations or
improvements are allowed by Landlord, Tenant shall promptly pay all contracts
and materialmen, so as to eliminate the possibility of a lien attaching to the
Building or the Land, and should any such lien be made or filed, for any reason,
Tenant shall discharge the same within ten (10) days after written request by
Landlord or, with the written consent of the Landlord, Tenant may obtain a bond,
in an amount satisfactory to Landlord, insuring the discharge of any mechanic's
lien or liens for labor or materials arising out of work by Tenant upon the
Premises, and further indemnifying and holding Landlord harmless from any
actions, proceedings, claims, demands, losses, outlays, damage or expenses,
including legal fees, which may in any way arise out of or be caused by the lien
or liens. Landlord shall have the right, but not the obligation, to pay


                                                                              7



and discharge any such lien that attaches to the Premises or the Land, and 
Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for any such sums paid, together with 
interest at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) [per annum] within ten (10) 
days after written demand by Landlord.

        9.5 ADDITIONAL HVAC.  Subject to Sections 9.3 and 9.4, Landlord 
hereby consents to Tenant's installation at Tenant's sole cost and expense of 
additional HVAC systems to service the Premises.

                 ARTICLE X: MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS

        10.1 LANDLORD'S OBLIGATIONS. Landlord shall maintain in good order, 
condition and repair the Building, the Common Areas, the Land and all 
portions of the Premises which are not the obligation of Tenant or any other

              Any other expense that under generally accepted accounting 
principles and practice consistently applied would not be considered a normal 
maintenance or operating expense.

              (b) Tenant, at Tenant's sole cost and expense, shall maintain

              (f) In the event Tenant fails to maintain the Premises in good 
order, condition and repair, Landlord shall give Tenant notice to do such 
acts as are reasonably required to so maintain the Premises. In the event 
Tenant fails to promptly commence such work and diligently prosecute it to 
completion, then Landlord shall have the right to do such acts and expend 
such funds at the expense of Tenant as are reasonably required to perform 
such maintenance. Any amount so expended by Landlord shall be paid by Tenant 
together with interest thereon at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) per 
annum from the date of such repairs or maintenance upon written demand from 
Landlord. Landlord shall have no liability to Tenant for any damage, 
inconvenience or interference with the use of the Premises by Tenant as a

                 ARTICLE XI: DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION

                                                                            10



       11.1 PARTIAL DAMAGE - INSURED. In the event the Premises or the Building
are damaged by any casualty which is covered under fire and extended coverage
insurance carried by Landlord, then Landlord shall restore the Building,
provided insurance proceeds are available to pay eighty percent (80%) or more
of the cost of restoration and provided such restoration can be completed within
ninety (90) days after the commencement of the restoration in the opinion of a
registered architect or engineer appointed by Landlord. In such event, this
Lease shall continue in full force and effect, except that Tenant shall be
entitled to a proportionate reduction of rent while such restoration takes
place. Such proportionate reduction of rent shall be based upon the extent to
which the damaged portion of the Premises or the restoration efforts interfere
with Tenant's business in the Premises.

       11.2 PARTIAL DAMAGE - UNINSURED. In the event the Premises or the 
Building are damaged by a risk not covered by the Landlord's fire and 
extended coverage insurance or if the proceeds of the available insurance are 
less than eighty percent (80%) of the cost of restoration, or if the 
restoration cannot be completed within ninety (90) days after the 
commencement of the restoration, in the opinion of the registered architect 
or engineer appointed by Landlord, then Landlord shall have the option either 
to (1) repair or restore such damage, and if Landlord so elects to repair, 
this Lease shall continue in full force and effect, but the rent shall be 
proportionately abated as provided in Section 11.1 of this Lease, or (2) 
terminate this lease by giving written notice to Tenant, at any time within 
thirty (30) days after such damage. In the event Landlord give Tenant the 
notice of termination required by this Section 11.2, this Lease shall expire 
and all interest of Tenant in the Premises shall terminate on the date 
specified in the notice, and the rent, reduced by a proportionate reduction 
based upon the extent, if any, to which such damage interfered with the use 
and occupancy of Tenant, shall be paid to the date of termination. Landlord 
shall refund to Tenant any rent paid in advance for any period of time 
subsequent to the date of termination. Notwithstanding anything to the 
contrary contained herein, if Tenant's use of the Premises is substantially 
impaired for a period of more than 90 days after the date of casualty, Tenant 
shall have the right to terminate this Lease by written notice to Landlord at 
any time thereafter until Tenant's use of the Premises is substantially 
restored.

       11.3 TOTAL DESTRUCTION. In the event the Premises are totally destroyed
or the Premises cannot be restored as required in this Lease, or as required
under applicable laws, notwithstanding the availability of insurance proceeds,
this Lease shall terminate as of the date of damage.

       11.4 LANDLORD'S OBLIGATIONS. Landlord shall not be required to repair any
injury or damage by fire or other cause, or to make any restoration or
replacement of any panelings, decorations, partitions, railing, floor covering,
office fixtures or any other improvements or property installed in the Premises
by Tenant or at the direction or indirect expense of Tenant.

       11.5 TENANT'S CLAIMS AGAINST LANDLORD. Except for abatement of rent, if
any, Tenant shall have no claim against Landlord for any damage suffered by
reason of any such damage, destruction repair or restoration unless such damage
is caused by the intentional act or negligence of Landlord or Landlord's
designated agents or employees.

                    ARTICLE XII: CONDEMNATION


                                                                           11




       If all or any part of the Premises is taken or appropriated for public 
or quasi-public use by right of eminent domain with or without litigation or 
transferred by agreement in connection with such public or quasi-public use, 
Landlord and Tenant shall each have the right within thirty (30) days of 
receipt of notice of taking, to terminate this Lease as of the date 
possession is taken by the condemning authority; provided, however, that 
before Tenant may terminate this Lease by reason of taking or appropriation, 
such taking or appropriation shall be of such an extent and nature as to 
substantially handicap, impede or impair Tenant's use of the Premises. If any 
part of the Building other than the Premises shall be so taken or 
appropriated, Landlord shall have the right at Landlord's option to terminate 
this Lease. No award for any entire taking shall be apportioned, and Tenant 
hereby assigns to Landlord any award which may be made in such taking or 
condemnation, together with any and all rights of Tenant now or hereafter 
arising in or to the award of any portion thereof; provided, however, that 
nothing contained herein shall be deemed to give Landlord any interest in or 
to require Tenant to assign to Landlord any award made to Tenant for the 
taking of personal property belonging to Tenant, and for the interruption of 
or damage to Tenant's business. In the event of a partial taking which does 
not result in a termination of this Lease, the Base Monthly Rent shall be 
abated in the proportion which the part of the Premises so made unusable 
bears to the rented area of the Premises; and any award made to Tenant by 
reason of any such temporary taking shall belong entirely to Tenant, and 
Landlord shall not be entitled to any portion thereof.

                ARTICLE XIII: ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING

       13.1 LANDLORD'S CONSENT REQUIRED. Tenant shall not assign, transfer,
mortgage, pledge, hypothecate or encumber this Lease or any interest therein
either voluntarily or involuntarily by operation of law or otherwise, and Tenant
shall not sublet the Premises or any part thereof, without the prior written
consent of Landlord, and any attempt to do so shall be wholly void and shall, at
Landlord's election constitute a default under this Lease.

        13.2 REASONABLE CONSENT. If Tenant complies with the following
conditions, Landlord shall not unreasonably withhold Landlord's consent to the
subletting of the Premises or any portion thereof or the assignment of this
Lease. Tenant shall submit in writing to Landlord (a) the name and legal
composition of the proposed subtenant or assignee; (b) the nature of the
business proposed to be carried on in the Premises; (c) the terms and provisions
of the proposed sublease; and (d) such reasonable financial information as
Landlord may request concerning the proposed subtenant or assignee.

       13.3. NO RELEASE OF TENANT. No consent by Landlord to any assignment 
or subletting by Tenant shall relieve Tenant of any obligation to be 
performed by Tenant under this Lease, whether occurring before or after such 
consent, assignment or subletting. The consent by Landlord to any assignment 
or subletting shall not relieve Tenant from the obligation to obtain 
Landlord's express written consent to any other assignment or subletting. The 
acceptance of rent by Landlord from any other person or legal entity shall 
not be deemed to be a waiver by assignment, subletting or other transfer. 
Consent to one assignment, subletting or other transfer shall not be deemed 
to constitute consent to any subsequent assignment, subletting or other 
transfer.

                                                                            12




       13.4 INCREASED EXPENSES. Tenant shall pay Landlord the amounts of any 
increase in costs or expenses incident to the occupancy of the Premises by 
such assignee or subtenant, including but not limited to, any increase in 
Landlord's insurance premiums and reasonable attorney's fees incurred in 
connection with giving such consent.

       13.5 ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING. Tenant may not assign this Lease or 
sublet the Premises, or any portion thereof, without Landlord's prior written 
consent, except to any entity which controls, is controlled by, or is under 
common control with Tenant; to any entity which results from a merger of, 
reorganization of, or consolidation with Tenant; to any entity engaged in a 
joint venture with Tenant; or to any entity which acquires substantially all 
of the stock or assets of Tenant, as a going concern, with respect to the 
business that is being conducted in the Premises (hereinafter each a 
'Permitted Transfer'). In addition, a sale or transfer of the capital stock 
of Tenant shall be deemed a Permitted Transfer if (1) such sale or transfer 
occurs in connection with any BONA FIDE financing or capitalization for the 
benefit of Tenant, or (2) Tenant is or becomes a publicly traded corporation. 
Landlord shall have no right to terminate the Lease in connection with, and 
shall have no right to any sums or other economic consideration resulting 
from any Permitted Transfer. Anything to the contrary notwithstanding Tenant 
shall remain jointly or severly liable for the Lease.

       ARTICLE XIV: SUBORDINATION, QUIET ENJOYMENT AND ATTORNMENT

       14.1 SUBORDINATION. Subject to Tenant's receipt of a reasonably 
satisfactory non-disturbance agreement the approval of which shall not be 
unreasonably withheld or delayed, this Lease at Landlord's option shall be 
subject and subordinate to the lien of any mortgages or deed of trust in any 
amount or amounts whatsoever now or hereafter placed on or against the Land, 
the Building, on or against Landlord's interest or estate therein, without 
the necessity of the execution and delivery of any further instruments on the 
part of Tenant to effectuate such subordinations.

       14.2 SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT. Subject to Tenant's receipt of a 
reasonably satisfactory non-disturbance agreement the approval of which shall 
not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, Tenant shall execute and deliver 
upon demand, without charge therefor, such further instruments evidencing 
such subordination of this Lease to the lien of any such mortgages or deeds 
of trust as may be required by Landlord. Tenant hereby irrevocably appoints 
Landlord as Tenant's attorney-in-fact, coupled with an interest (which power 
shall not be affected by the disability of Tenant) to execute and deliver any 
such agreements, instruments, releases or other documents.

       14.3 QUIET ENJOYMENT. Upon paying rent and other sums or amounts due 
under the Lease, and performing Tenant's covenants and conditions under the 
Lease, Tenant shall and may peaceably and quietly have, hold and enjoy the 
Premises for the term of this Lease, subject, however, to the terms, 
covenants and conditions of this Lease and of any mortgage or deed of trust 
described in Section 14.1.

        14.4 ATTORNMENT. In the event of foreclosure or the exercise of the
power of sale under any mortgage or deed of trust made by Landlord covering the
Premises or the Building, Tenant shall attorn to the purchaser upon any such
foreclosure or sale and recognize such


                                                                           13





purchaser as the Landlord under this Lease, provided said purchaser expressly
agrees in writing to be bound by the terms of this Lease.

                  ARTICLE XV: DEFAULT AND REMEDIES

       15.1 DEFAULT. The occurrence of any of the following shall constitute 
a material default and breach of this Lease by Tenant:

              (a) Any failure by Tenant to pay the Base Monthly Rent, Base 
Monthly Rent Adjustments or any other monetary sums required to be paid under 
this Lease, where such failure continues for five (5) business days after 
written notice thereof by Landlord to Tenant:

              (b) The abandonment of the Premises by Tenant;

              (c) A failure by Tenant to observe and perform any other terms, 
covenants or condition of this Lease to be observed or performed by Tenant, 
where such failure continues for twenty (20) days after written notice 
thereof by Landlord to Tenant; provided, however, that if the nature of the 
default cannot reasonably be cured within the twenty (20) days period, Tenant 
shall not be deemed to be in default if Tenant shall within the twenty (20) 
day period commence action to cure the default and thereafter diligently 
prosecutes the same to completion;

              (d) The making by Tenant of any general assignment or general 
arrangement for the benefit of creditors; the filing by or against Tenant or 
a petition to have Tenant adjudged a bankrupt or of a petition for 
reorganization or arrangement under any law relating to bankruptcy (unless, 
in the case of a petition filed against Tenant, the same is dismissed within 
sixty (60) days); the appointment of a trustee or receiver to take possession 
of substantially all of Tenant's assets located at the Premises or of 
Tenant's interest in this Lease, where possession is not restored to Tenant 
within sixty (60) days; or the attachment, execution, or other judicial 
seizure of substantially all of Tenant's assets located at the Premises or of 
Tenant's interest in this Lease, where such seizure is not discharged within 
sixty (60) days.

       15.2 NONEXCLUSIVE REMEDIES. In the event of any such material default by
Tenant, Landlord shall have the right to continue this Lease in full force and
effect and to collect all Base Monthly Rent, Base Monthly Rent Adjustments, and
other fees to be paid by Tenant under this Lease as and when due. During any
period that Tenant is in default, Landlord shall have the right, pursuant to
legal proceedings or pursuant to any notice provided for by law, to enter and
take possession of the Premises, without terminating this Lease, for the purpose
of reletting the Premises or any part thereof and making any alterations and
repairs that may be necessary or desirable in connection with such reletting.
Any such reletting or relettings may be for such term or terms (including
periods that exceed the balance of the term of this Lease), and upon such other
terms, covenants and conditions as Landlord may in Landlord's sole discretion
deem advisable. Upon each and any such reletting , the rent or rents received by
Landlord from such reletting shall be applied as follows: (1) to the payment of
any indebtedness (other than rent) due hereunder from Tenant to Landlord; (2) to
the payment of costs and expenses of such reletting, including brokerage fees,
attorney's fees, court costs, and costs of any alterations or repairs; (3) to
the payment of Base Monthly Rent, Base Monthly


                                                                              14




Rent Adjustments and other amounts due and unpaid hereunder; and (4) the 
residue, if any, shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future 
Base Monthly Rent, Base Monthly Rent Adjustments and other amounts as they 
become due and payable hereunder. If the rent or rents received during any 
month and applied as provided above shall be insufficient to cover all such 
amounts including the Base Monthly Rent, Base Monthly Rent Adjustments and 
other amounts to be paid by Tenant pursuant to this Lease for such month, 
Tenant shall pay to Landlord any deficiency; such deficiencies shall be 
calculated and paid monthly. No entry or taking possession of the Premises by 
Landlord shall be construed as an election by Landlord to terminate this 
Lease, unless Landlord gives written notice of such election to Tenant or 
unless such termination shall be decreed by a court of competent 
jurisdiction. Notwithstanding any reletting by Landlord without termination, 
Landlord may at any time thereafter terminate this Lease for such previous 
default by giving written notice thereof to Tenant.

              (b) Terminate Tenant's right to possession by notice to Tenant, 
in which case this Lease shall terminate and Tenant shall immediately 
surrender possession of the Premises to Landlord. In such event Landlord 
shall be entitled to recover from Tenant all damages incurred by Landlord by 
reason of Tenant's default, including without limitation the following: (1) 
all unpaid rent which has been earned at the time of such termination 
(together with interest thereon at the rate of eighteen (18%) per annum to 
the time of award) plus (2) the amount by which the unpaid rent which would 
have been earned after termination until the time of award (together with 
interest thereon at the rate of eighteen percent (18%) per annum) exceeds 
the amount of such rental loss that is proved could have been reasonably 
avoided; and (3) any other amount necessary to compensate Landlord for all 
the detriment proximately caused by Tenant's failure to perform Tenant's 
obligations under this Lease as may be permitted form time to time. Upon any 
such re-entry, Landlord shall have the right to make any reasonable repairs, 
alterations or modifications to the Premises which Landlord in Landlord's 
reasonable discretion deems reasonable and necessary.

       15.3 ADDITIONAL REMEDIES, COSTS AND EXPENSES. In addition to the 
nonexclusive remedies provided in Section 15.2 above, Landlord shall have all 
remedies now or hereafter provided by law for enforcing the provisions of 
this Lease and Landlord's rights hereunder. In the event of any default under 
this Lease, Landlord shall be entitled to recover from Tenant all costs and 
expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees and court costs, incurred by 
Landlord (with or without suit and before or after judgment) in obtaining 
possession of the Premises, in collecting any Base Monthly Rent and any 
adjustments thereto or other amounts due under the terms of this Lease and in 
enforcing the provisions of this Lease or any right of Landlord under this 
Lease.

       15.4 DEFAULT BY LANDLORD. Landlord shall not be in default unless 
Landlord fails to perform obligations required of Landlord within a 
reasonable time, but in no event later than thirty (30) days after written 
notice by Tenant to Landlord, specifying the nature of Landlord's default; 
provided, however, that if the nature of the Landlord's obligation is such 
that more than thirty (30) days are required for performance, then Landlord 
shall not be in default if Landlord commences performance within the thirty 
(30) day period and thereafter proceeds with reasonable diligence and in good 
faith to complete the required performance.


                                                                           15





                  ARTICLE XVI: ENTRY BY LANDLORD

       Landlord shall, during the term of this Lease, have the right to enter 
the Premises to inspect the same at reasonable time and upon reasonable 
notice to Tenant (taking into consideration the nature of Tenant's business), 
to submit the Premises to prospective purchasers or tenant (but only after 
Tenant's normal business hours) and to alter, improve or repair the Premises 
and any portion of the Building without abatement of rent. Landlord may for 
that purpose erect scaffolding and other necessary structures where 
reasonably required by the character of the work to be performed; provided 
however, that the entrance to the Premises shall not be blocked thereby, and 
further provided that the business of Tenant shall not be interfered with 
unreasonably. For each of the aforesaid purposes, Landlord shall at all times 
have and retain a key with which to unlock all of the doors in, upon and 
about the Premises, excluding Tenant's vaults and safes. Landlord shall have 
the right to use any and all means which Landlord may deem proper to open the 
doors in an emergency, in order to obtain entry to the Premises, and any 
entry to the Premises obtained by Landlord by such means or otherwise shall 
not under any circumstances be construed or deemed to be a forcible or 
unlawful entry into, a detainer of the Premises, or any eviction of Tenant 
from the Premises or any portion thereof. Notwithstanding the provisions of 
Article XVI, Landlord shall provide Tenant with at least 48 hours' prior 
actual notice before entering the Premises. In the event of an emergency, the 
determination of which shall require Landlord to be reasonable, Landlord 
shall use its best efforts to provide Tenant with notice reasonable in such 
situation.

       17.1 INDEMNITY. Tenant shall indemnify and hold Landlord harmless from 
any and all claims of liability for any injury or damage to any person or 
property whatsoever (a) occurring in, on or about the Premises or any part 
thereof; and (b) occurring in, on or about any common area, including, but 
not limited to, all elevators, stairways, passageways, hallways and parking 
areas, and the use of which Tenant may have in conjunction with other tenants 
of the Building, when such injury or damage is caused in part or in whole by 
the negligence or willful misconduct of Tenant, Tenant's agents, contractors, 
employees, licensees or invitees. Tenant shall further indemnify and hold 
Landlord harmless from and against any and all claims arising from any breach 
or default in the performance of any obligation on Tenant's part to be 
performed under the terms of this Lease, or arising from any negligence of 
Tenant, or any of Tenant's agents, contractors, employees, licensees or 
invitees and from and against all costs, attorney's fees, expenses and 
liabilities incurred in the defense of any such claim or any action or 
proceeding brought thereon. Tenant shall not, however, be liable for damage 
or injury occasioned by the negligence or intentional acts of Landlord and 
Landlord's designated agents or employees, or a breach of this Lease by 
Landlord.

       17.2 ATTORNEY'S FEES AND COSTS. The obligation to indemnify shall include
reasonable legal and investigation costs and all other reasonable costs,
expenses and liabilities from the first notice that any claim or demand is to be
made or may be made.

               ARTICLE XVIII: ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES


                                                                            16
