We are proud to introduce Breaking New Ground, a recurring newsletter that will provide strategic legal guidance to the commercial real estate industry. With over 550 real estate attorneys globally (including more than 200 in the United States), DLA Piper is in a unique position to deliver timely and valuable insights into the latest commercial real estate developments.
We would be remiss in not first taking this opportunity to wish you and your family good health and well-being during these unprecedented times. DLA Piper continues to track developments on the emerging situation surrounding the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and the impacts the crisis may have on the commercial real estate industry.
In this issue, we share conversations with some of the brightest and most gifted minds in real estate finance on topics ranging from loan workouts to the future of commercial real estate.
Elsewhere in this issue, we have an article providing strategies to fix CMBS through the lens of Peter Drucker, a piece on the benefits of real estate tokenization, an analysis of the risk to lenders of the “dual collateral” approach, and recommendations that every hotel owner should be considering to combat the devastating effects of COVID-19 on the hospitality and leisure industry.
Finally, we proffer various ideas for real estate owners in need of capital to monetize their real estate holdings.
If you have any feedback on how we can make this newsletter a more valuable addition to your industry review, please drop us a note.
We hope you enjoy this edition and remain safe and well during these challenging times.
