Weakened balance sheets burdened by tremendous amounts of debt, coupled with a sharp decrease in consumer spending, has left many iconic brands and businesses contemplating whether they have the capital to continue operating. Bankruptcy, unfortunately, has become an increasingly realistic option for many of these troubled companies.

Join us as we listen to a panel of commercial real estate experts discuss the principles of bankruptcy and how it affects landlords, retailers, lenders and others in the business. Also, learn how some of these groups are successfully adapting to changes in bankruptcy laws to realize a better result.
