Recent Trends in Lease Rejection Issues

October 19, 2017


Many insolvency professionals regularly encounter the rejection of real property leases under section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code, either through the representation of debtors, creditors, landlords, or tenants. Lease rejection issues have become more prevalent during the recent spate of retail bankruptcies, particularly due to the rise of online retail and the accompanying threat to traditional brick-and-mortar. This Webinar will review trends in lease rejection on a national level from both the legal and financial advisory perspectives, and provide an understanding of how bankruptcies affecting retail, office/commercial, hotel, healthcare and manufacturing leases have changed the lease rejection landscape.
