Real Estate Workouts

Spencer Fane attorneys represent commercial banks and other financial institutions as well as property owners and developers in negotiating beneficial real estate workouts, assisting the parties involved in moving past loans in default and creating new or repaired relationships that are financially viable.

In tumultuous real estate circumstances involving bankruptcy or insolvency, our attorneys work collaboratively across practices to find practical, cost-efficient solutions. Our experienced bankruptcy attorneys possess a clear understanding of the unique regulations surrounding these difficult situations, which they use to provide loan workouts, bankruptcy and creditor remedies, out-of-court workouts and restructuring, and receivership and foreclosure services to financial services and real estate clients dealing with defaulted loans.

Spencer Fane attorneys regularly work on construction and permanent mortgage loan transactions, sale-leasebacks, and other forms of real estate financing. These transactions and relationships involve a broad range of properties including office buildings, shopping centers, hotels, industrial properties and apartment complexes, condominiums, single family residential, and mixed-use developments.

We draw upon the extensive knowledge of our attorneys firm-wide who are actively involved in day-to-day real estate transactional practice. We then leverage cross-discipline experience when matters require attorneys in Banking and Financial Services, Real Estate Finance, Bankruptcy, Litigation & Dispute Resolution, and Taxation to achieve optimal results for clients.
