Landlord & Contract Counter Parties Representation

Our Bankruptcy team regularly represents landlords and tenants in all facets of out-of-court workouts, restructurings, and bankruptcy matters. In collaboration with our Real Estate attorneys, we counsel landlords and tenants through the challenges—and opportunities—arising from a counterparty’s financial distress. Similarly, our Bankruptcy practice group skillfully represents non-debtor contract parties to effectively and efficiently limit our clients’ risk and liability and to advance our clients’ business interests.

We represent landlords, tenants, and contract counterparties in a full array of bankruptcy issues, including contractual negotiations, forbearance agreements, assumption and assignment of leases and contracts, and claims related to lease rejection damages. Our broad experience ranging from small and middle-market to large and complex restructuring and bankruptcy matters in a variety of industries across the country helps our bankruptcy team understand the specific issues facing landlords, tenants, and contract counterparties.
