Stoel Rives is uniquely positioned to represent parties involved with distressed real estate. Our team of seasoned professionals brings extensive experience and comprehensive capabilities to the table, making us the go-to firm for complex bankruptcy and insolvency matters, particularly in the Pacific Northwest.

For property owners and developers, our experience with distressed real estate covers all asset classes including multifamily, office, retail, hotel, industrial, and agricultural properties and includes a track record of successfully helping clients navigate past market downturns. Our services range from negotiated resolutions to litigation to achieve acceptable debt restructuring, and we also provide expert advice to guarantors on their options.

Our distressed real estate capabilities for lenders are equally robust, encompassing out-of-court workouts, debt restructuring, and, when necessary, judicial and nonjudicial foreclosure, receivership, and real estate bankruptcies across all asset classes. Our experience also extends to construction law, navigating challenges such as mechanics’ liens associated with distressed projects under construction.

Our clients, whether they are project owners or developers, landlords or tenants, contractors, lenders, or borrowers, have access to one of the largest interdisciplinary teams in the Northwest. We can call on colleagues specializing in financing transactions, sales, leasing, land use entitlement, environmental issues, and state and federal tax laws as needed.

At Stoel Rives, we understand that each distressed property presents a unique set of legal challenges. Our team of seasoned attorneys has a deep understanding of the legal intricacies involved in real estate loan workouts and is skilled at crafting personalized legal strategies to address the specific circumstances of each property.

Our approach is proactive and solution-oriented, with a commitment to putting our clients' needs first and providing comprehensive, integrated legal solutions. We have a proven track record of success, a client-centric approach, and a collaborative, interdisciplinary team, all of which position us well to help our clients navigate the complexities of distressed real estate situations in the current financial climate.
