3/18/20 WBA LUNCH CLE: Landlord Issues in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Proceedings
March 18, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$35.00
Please join us for our March WBA Lunch CLE on 3/18/20 where Joshua Lesser and Kristen Jacobsen, Greenberg Traurig LLP, will present Landlord Issues in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Proceedings.
With increasing frequency, financially-distressed businesses are seeking refuge under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code, 11 U.S.C. § 101 et seq. (the “Bankruptcy Code”). Unfortunately, legal and financial professionals are often unaware of the numerous benefits afforded to creditors and debtors in a bankruptcy proceeding. This is especially true in the area of landlord?tenant law, where the filing of a chapter 11 petition substantially changes the standard contract rights and obligations of landlords and tenants, as well as the remedies available to enforce such rights and obligations. This presentation will offer some practical tips in drafting a lease and in responding to a chapter 11 filing to maximize a landlord’s recovery.
