Distressed Real Estate

Disruption creates opportunity

When the real estate industry faces instability, our Distressed Real Estate lawyers counsel clients through the challenges that arise with it. We have guided clients through multiple real estate market cycles, working with lenders, funds, borrowers, operators, developers, purchasers, sellers, sponsors, investors, institutional advisors, and investment managers across the globe to implement structures and transactional and litigation solutions that produce the best possible outcomes.

We take a multi-disciplinary approach to distressed situations in partnership with our Real Estate, Financial Restructuring, Tax, Litigation, and Securities practices, advising with respect to:

  • Mortgage, mezzanine, and portfolio/credit facility defaults and remedies, including foreclosures, out-of-court and in-court restructurings, workouts, deeds and assignments in lieu, and discounted pay-offs
  • Debt purchases and sales, including “loan-to-own” transactions, whole loans, portfolios, and CMBS
  • Bankruptcy and other insolvency matters, including fraudulent conveyance and preferences, substantive consolidation, cash collateral and debtor-in-possession financing, adequate protection, and plan confirmation
  • Fund and joint venture amendments and modifications, including change of control (removal and replacement), defaults, modifications to capital commitments, deadlocks, and contested and uncontested exercise of exit rights
  • Lender funding defaults
