Real Estate in 2021 and Beyond: Trends from the Pandemic
Sponsored by FTI Consulting, Inc.
This panel of legal and business experts examines the ripple effects of the COVID pandemic on the real estate world, including its impact on office buildings, retail, hospitality and lending. Starting with a brief overview of the market, the panelists explore the domino effects of the pandemic on tenants, landlords, lenders and investors. What is different about this crisis from previous real estate downturns, and how will (or should) strategies differ? Will we see a wave of SAREs? What exacerbating problems could arise in retail bankruptcies (such as co-tenancy agreements in malls) or hospitality cases (such as franchise and flagging issues)? What opportunities will exist in 363 sales, lease assignments and discounted loans? This lively discussion of legal issues and business strategies promises to make you think of COVID effects in whole new ways.
