Distressed Assets and Workouts

In response to the stress and uncertainty of the current economic environment, including the depressed real estate market and credit crisis, Arnall Golden Gregory has formed the Distressed Assets Practice Team. Our attorneys are prepared to advise borrowers, investors, lenders and others who are currently dealing with or contemplating loan workouts and/or recapitalizations, as well as clients who may be interested in acquiring or investing in distressed assets or loans encumbering such assets. In addition, we assist clients with restructuring their companies by acquiring target businesses (or the assets of those businesses), divesting underperforming assets or business units and/or financial restructuring. Members of the Distressed Assets Practice Team include AGG attorneys in Commercial Real Estate, Commercial Lending, Bankruptcy, Corporate, Litigation, Tax and Environmental Law who bring significant depth of experience to bear on the issues that must be addressed with respect to any threatened real estate or business asset. Our team has substantial experience in dealing with workouts and other issues with troubled assets and has a long track record of reaching the desired results for our clients.
 
There are times when situations need to be resolved with an outside authority or dispute resolution mechanism. AGG’s Bankruptcy and Litigation Practice Groups have extensive experience handling matters, both locally and nationally, in the bankruptcy courts and through mediation, arbitration and litigation.
 
With almost 60 years of experience representing our clients throughout the United States, whether an entrepreneurial mid-sized business, a Fortune 500 company, a major institutional lender, a REIT, a commercial real estate developer or a foreign investor, we know how to evaluate the options and achieve success for our clients.
