About this Program

Given the recent economic downturn, the need for many real estate borrowers to seek bankruptcy protection has increased and with it we have seen a significant rise in bankruptcy litigation. These actions, specifically in respect to single asset real estate debtors and supposedly bankruptcy remote special purpose vehicles, can be a confusing and highly contentious area of practice.  In this program, attorneys Wayne H. Davis and Elaine Kleinberg discuss the many issues a real estate lender can run into when a borrower files for bankruptcy. The presenters cover single asset real estate debtors, how they are defined and how they are treated differently in respect to the federal bankruptcy code. Further, they explain bankruptcy remote special purpose vehicles and what role they play in many modern real estate transactions.  Davis and Kleinberg expertly unpack the recent cases In re Kara Homes, Inc., In re General Growth Properties, Inc., In re Extended Stay Inc., and In re TOUSA, Inc. and clarify the market reality-based rationales the courts used to decide these advanced bankruptcy cases.  This course is a must see for real estate attorneys trying to keep up with the newest cases and prepare themselves for the many issues that a borrower declaring bankruptcy might cause for real estate professionals. 
 

Agenda:

I.      Single Asset Real Estate Debtors 
II.     Comparison of “SARE” Debtor Bankruptcy Process with State Court Receivership
III.    Remote Special Purpose Vehicles
IV.    Fraudulent Conveyances and Transfers
