Governmental takings are commonplace, and every real estate attorney should have a working knowledge of condemnation law and procedure to represent their clients effectively.

11:30      Tenant Bankruptcy

Kiah T. "Chip" Ford IV, Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP, Charlotte

With increased financial distress in the marketplace and a corresponding rise in bankruptcy filings nationwide, commercial landlords are facing heightened risk that their tenants may file for bankruptcy. This can alter the landlord/tenant relationship in significant and often unforeseen ways, especially if the bankrupt tenant wishes to remain in possession of the leased premises or monetize the lease. In this session, attendees learn (1) bankruptcy basics pertinent to commercial landlords, (2) the respective rights and obligations imposed on landlords and tenants under federal bankruptcy law, and (3) what steps can be taken by a commercial landlord in order to minimize the financial impact of a tenant's bankruptcy filing.
