Distressed Real Estate

Stoel Rives is uniquely positioned to represent all parties involved in distressed real estate situations. 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.


Our capabilities and experience for lenders are robust, encompassing out-of-court workouts, debt restructuring, and, when necessary, judicial and nonjudicial foreclosure, receivership, and real estate bankruptcies across all asset classes, including multifamily, office, retail, industrial, and hotel properties. Our expertise also extends to construction law, a critical area for navigating unique challenges such as mechanics’ liens associated with distressed projects under construction.

For property owners and developers, our experience is equally comprehensive, covering all asset classes and including 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 clients, whether they are lenders or borrowers, landlords or tenants, project owners or contractors, 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.
