Real Estate Special Opportunities

In the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Cole Schotz’s Real Estate Special Opportunities group has been active in advising clients on the issues being confronted today, and opportunities that will arise as parties seek to monetize assets and/or deploy capital in the weeks and months to come.

The Real Estate Special Opportunities Group was originally formed in 2008, in response to the worst economic fallout that the country suffered since the Great Depression. Members of the group utilized their breadth of experience in both thriving and distressed economic environments to offer clients flexible and creative solutions to a multitude of complex real estate transactions. The group is a compilation of skilled practitioners from across the Firm’s many practice groups; including real estate, corporate, tax, environmental, litigation, bankruptcy and restructuring departments – allowing us to employ a multi-disciplinary approach when structuring flexible and creative solutions. In addition, our attorneys are especially poised to make introductions and assist in facilitating those interested in deploying capital or those in need of rescue capital.

Our attorneys are experienced in strategic debt acquisitions and originations, debt restructurings and workouts, asset acquisitions, dispositions and recapitalizations, and the prosecution of property and equity foreclosures (both contested and uncontested). Our clients include developers, owners/operators, REITS, real estate private equity and opportunity firms and funds, private and institutional lenders of mortgage and mezzanine loans, and family offices.

By proactively addressing developing issues and identifying potential opportunities, our attorneys can resolve obstacles and consummate transactions during unhospitable conditions. Our goal is to ensure that the business objectives of our clients remain viable despite unexpected changes in the marketplace. With a history spanning over 90 years, Cole Schotz has navigated clients through several significant economic downturns and has been fortunate to witness clients thrive in the years that follow.
