We regularly represent developers, lenders, landlords, investors, and other parties in real estate-related bankruptcies, workouts, and restructurings. We understand the business of real estate, as well as the legal issues, and we work closely with our colleagues in the firm's highly regarded real estate practice, several of whom also have substantial bankruptcy experience. This enables us to achieve our clients' objectives with creative, expeditious, and cost-effective solutions.
Our bankruptcy lawyers regularly represent secured lenders in enforcing their remedies, including through foreclosure or receivership and in bankruptcy court. In single-asset real estate cases, we have had success in obtaining relief from the automatic stay, defeating cramdown plans, confirming creditors' plans, pursuing collection litigation, and defending lender liability suits. We have also negotiated creative, consensual resolutions, quickly and with relatively little expense, in many single-asset cases.
We also represent real estate developers, owners and investors in resolving issues with their lenders. Often we are able to achieve the desired results without the need for a bankruptcy filing. However, where an out-of-court strategy is not workable, we will help achieve the necessary restructuring in a chapter 11 proceeding.
We also represent investors in acquiring real estate assets from chapter 11 proceedings, and in purchasing debt secured by real estate assets. We have particular experience in the unique issues involving hotel debtors and have represented creditors, owners, and investors in a wide variety of bankruptcy and debt restructuring matters involving hotels.
We also regularly represent landlords facing the bankruptcy or insolvency of their tenants or seeking to structure their lease transactions in a way that will minimize their risk of an insolvency or bankruptcy.
In addition to our extensive experience in single-asset bankruptcy cases, we also play a significant role in some of the largest and most complex real estate-related bankruptcy cases in the country. Many of these matters involve complex financing structures, novel legal issues, and hundreds of millions of dollars in debt.
