The downturn in the real estate market creates opportunities to design innovative solutions that preserve value. Having negotiated and structured complex deals with many of the country’s most significant players in the real estate market, Bingham has extensive experience representing clients in connection with all aspects of real estate loan workouts and restructurings.
Bingham has a long history of representing clients throughout the United States in major real estate transactions. We represent many of the country’s largest and most sophisticated financial institutions, developers, governmental entities, corporations and REITs, pension fund advisers and other investors in real estate acquisitions, dispositions, joint ventures and financings.
As the go-to firm for financial restructuring, our clients routinely turn to us for advice on developing strategies for problem and underperforming real estate loans and other distressed real estate investments. Bingham’s Financial Restructuring Group provides cutting-edge insights and strategic advice concerning troubled investments and loans worldwide. Members of the group serve as advisers to investors, creditors, debtors, governments and courts on commercial restructuring issues and insolvencies and sovereign debt defaults.
We are particularly skilled in multijurisdictional real estate workouts and have had significant involvement, in and out of bankruptcy, in negotiating and implementing reorganization plans for troubled real estate projects. We have represented clients in a wide range of distressed real estate projects, including loans and portfolios in excess of $1 billion. From evaluating the benefits of using forbearance agreements to devising exit strategies, we help clients assess their options and develop viable, effective solutions.
In addition, we have the experience and understanding of the real estate and financial industries necessary to help clients identify and take advantage of distressed debt opportunities involving real property. We represent clients in acquisitions involving single-asset real property and multi-asset portfolios, both in specific regions and throughout the country. We understand the challenges and opportunities presented by distressed real estate and routinely help clients evaluate and structure transactions to yield favorable results.
We take a comprehensive approach to achieving our clients’ objectives.
