Best & Flanagan is well-versed in counseling business clients through a broad range of options related to financial restructuring and lease transactions. Given our diverse background of representing commercial creditors, landlords, debtors, tenants and investors, we are able to effectively and efficiently identify when a commercial entity or lease can be restructured in order to restore value for owners, creditors, tenants, debtors and investors. We consistently, and successfully, deliver much needed solutions to financially distressed businesses, developers, landlords, tenants, investors and lending institutions, as well as to opportunist acquirers and investors.
We work with businesses, including landlords and tenants, to renegotiate the terms of their financing agreements, leases, reduce debt and restructure operations. Within a bankruptcy proceeding, we negotiate and document:
- Cash collateral orders
- Post-petition financing agreements
- Automatic stay matters
- Debt restructuring
- Preference and fraudulent conveyances
- Section 363 sales
- Assumption/rejection of real estate and other leases
- Reclamation claims
- Plan and disclosure statements
- Plan confirmation proceedings
- Risk mitigation
We also provide expertise in navigating through complicated workouts and restructurings involving commercial, residential and mixed use real estate properties, as well as commercial and industrial businesses. Our team has a flair for converting turmoil into favorable outcomes for our clients.
