AGG has extensive experience with the formation and operation of public and private real estate investment trusts (REITs) in several industries, including healthcare, retail, warehouse and office sectors. Our representation includes acquisitions, dispositions, leasing and financing transactions, including extensive expertise structuring RIDEA transactions in the healthcare industry (such as those involving joint ventures with a non-REIT operating partner).
Our REIT team of real estate, tax, corporate, healthcare, litigation and bankruptcy attorneys implement a multi-disciplinary, industry-focused approach to a wide variety of transactions and operational matters, often involving very complex and inter-connected issues. We regularly advise REIT clients in connection with mergers and acquisitions, REIT compliance matters, regulatory filings, and healthcare regulatory matters, including licensure applications in RIDEA transactions. We have extensive experience advising REITS in connection with defaulting master lease tenants, and help the client implement a customized strategy designed to avoid a tenant bankruptcy while maximizing recourse and regaining control of owned assets, all with minimal operational disruption.
