Webcast: Bankruptcy and Real Estate: Risks and Opportunities in Distressed Situations

January 19, 2021

Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code provides a legal framework for financially distressed companies to survive turbulent times and maximize value for investors, lenders, and other stakeholders.  However, chapter 11 also provides a debtor with tools to modify stakeholders’ rights and expectations with respect to the debtor or its assets.  These tools are particularly relevant with respect to distressed real estate assets.  During this panel presentation, members of Gibson Dunn’s restructuring and real estate practices will discuss the opportunities and risks arising from bankruptcy cases involving real estate assets, and how all stakeholders can proactively take advantage of those opportunities and avoid those risks—particularly through thoughtful pre-bankruptcy planning.
