Workouts and Bankruptcy

Baker Hostetler advises clients in complex, high-profile and strongly contested bankruptcy proceedings. We play a key role in many major bankruptcy cases in the United States, advising debtors, creditors and committees in national and international bankruptcy cases.

Our more than 30 bankruptcy, reorganization and creditors’ rights attorneys have extensive experience in out-of-court workouts, complex reorganizations, refinancing and bankruptcy proceedings.

They have particular experience with distressed credits including foreclosures, forbearance agreements, receiverships and the creation and/or liquidation of security interests.

As part of the Distressed Real Estate Assets group, these attorneys work closely with their litigation, real estate and tax colleagues both to safeguard client interests in bankruptcy situations and to leverage opportunities with acquired assets.

Real Estate Asset Program

Our Real Estate Asset Program (REAP) lawyers assist businesses through the evaluation of their real estate and facility portfolios, identifying ways to gain fiscal, management and financial value. Additionally, we assist businesses in managing their real estate holdings so the companies can focus on core business objectives.

Our goal is to convert real estate holdings from a liability to a performing asset. Innovative management of corporate property and facilities poses tremendous real impact opportunities for both cost savings and core industry advantage.

Baker Hostetler attorneys can assist in lease negotiations and renegotiations, corporate relocations, acquisitions, disposition of excess land/holdings, financings, tax incentives, forensic lease review and many other creative ways to create value.

Our attorneys have found that many companies decentralize the treatment of real estate assets due to its transactional and regional nature leading to missed opportunities.

Our REAP lawyers evaluate portfolios as a whole, considering lease arrangements, occupancy, excess space, locations, tax and environmental considerations. Recommendations may include creative methods for maximizing property use, alternative ownership structures, and the utilization of tax incentives and abatement programs.

For many of our clients, we function as a global real estate portfolio advisor and manager. We offer strategic planning for clients’ real estate operating structure and process, counsel in assessing excess properties and coordination for the disposition of properties.

Our preferred provider relationships make us a leader in outsourcing management. Finally, our real estate attorneys assist clients with the legal aspects of owning, leasing and financing headquarters, multi-locations, distribution facilities and/or production centers.
