Managing Legal Issues with Bankrupt Tenants
Allan Ickowitz and Jennifer Meeker presented, "Managing Legal Issues with Bankrupt Tenants" alongside Downtown Properties’ Willy Ma, President of Asset Management, and Eric Bender, Executive Vice President of Asset Management. The event was held in Nossaman LLP’s office in downtown Los Angeles. Hosted by the Commercial Real Estate Development Association (NAIOP), and part of their NAIOP University educational seminar series, this program took a hard look at the unfortunate trend of the increase in store closures and bankruptcy filings by retail businesses and potential trends in bankruptcy filings by commercial tenants generally. This panel explored how commercial real estate landlords should handle the array of legal issues they can expect to be faced with when a tenant goes bankrupt.
