The Nuts and Bolts of a Retail Bankruptcy: What Landlords Need to Know to Protect Their Rights and Avoid Pitfalls
The presenters will take participants on a journey through a typical retail bankruptcy case from the perspective of a retailer’s landlord, identifying the immediate questions and concerns that landlords often have when a retail tenant flies and emphasizing how landlords can protect their rights and minimize losses every step of the way. Among other issues that typically arise in Chapter 11, the presenters will focus on actions landlords should and should not take upon a retail tenant’s bankruptcy filing, the claims that are available to landlords, how to preserve and pursue them and how to address a retailer’s proposed sale of assets and/ or assumption and assignment of leases. The presentation is intended to be an interactive experience among the presenters that will ask, and respond to, all the burning questions participants either have been too confused or too intimidated to ask about the dreaded “B” word.
