Office Lease
The Company leases office space for its corporate headquarters, located at 11250 El Camino Real, Suite 100 San Diego, California 92130. The lease is effective from September 1, 2021 through October 31, 2023 and contains a renewal option for a two-year extension after the current expiration date. The Company does not expect that the renewal option will be exercised, and has therefore excluded the option from the calculation of the right of use asset and lease liability. The lease provides for two months of rent abatement and the initial monthly rent is $8,067 per month with annual increases of 3% commencing on November 1, 2022. The lease includes non-lease components (i.e., property management costs) that are paid separately from rent, based on actual costs incurred, and therefore were not included in the right-of-use asset and lease liability but are reflected as an expense in the period incurred. In calculating the present value of the lease payments, the Company has elected to utilize its incremental borrowing rate based on the lease term.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 lease expense comprised of $22,675 and $7,558, and $68,026 and $7,558, respectively in lease cost from the Company's non-cancellable operating lease.

General Litigation and Disputes
From time to time, in the normal course of operations, the Company may be a party to litigation and other dispute matters and claims. Litigation can be expensive and disruptive to normal business operations. Moreover, the results of complex legal proceedings are difficult to predict. An unfavorable outcome to any legal matter, if material, could have a materially adverse effect on the Company’s operations or financial position, liquidity or results of operations.
As of September 30, 2022, the Company is party to a legal proceeding with a former employee alleging wrongful termination. Due to the stage of the proceedings as of September 30, 2022, the Company is unable to estimate the potential contingency as the outcome remains uncertain. The Company is expensing the legal costs related to this proceeding as incurred.
