INTERLAW LIVE: COVID-19 Pandemic: Plotting a way Forward for Real Estate

Interlaw ensures professional development is at the forefront of our organization and hosts quarterly network-wide meetings to discuss topical issues and latest legal innovations. Additionally, relations between our strategic partners are further enhanced through regular workshops, receptions, professional congresses and informal 'meet ups'.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose a series of challenges for the real estate sector. Amid signs that deal activity is starting to pick up in some jurisdictions, many issues remain, including pricing uncertainty, concerns over tenants' ability to meet rental obligations, borrowers' consequent ability to meet debt service obligations, and the changes that owners and occupiers will need to make to create safe places to live, work, shop and be entertained. Whether you're a developer, housebuilder, institutional investor, landlord or tenant, these are the biggest challenges to face market participants in a lifetime.

To help those working in the real estate sector plot a successful way through the crisis and beyond, we have assembled a panel of real estate lawyers from the USA, UK, Germany and Spain to provide clear guidance and practical advice on the many and varied challenges ahead. We will also be joined by Craig Tagen, Managing Director and Head of Asset Management and Separate Accounts at property investors Clarion Partners, who will provide his perspective on how those present in the real estate sector can navigate their way through this crisis. 

From questions over rent obligations and restructuring leases and debt service through to assessing the suitability of premises for post-COVID-19 occupation, our panelists will address the most significant issues facing the sector and answer your questions live. We will cover:

  • Broaching the rent issue - for landlords and tenants, and lender considerations;
  • Practical issues facing investors on acquisitions, disposals and lettings;
  • Getting back to business - issues facing owners and occupiers of business premises;
  • Exercising prudent portfolio management for investors;
  • The importance of both long and short term strategic thinking in preparing for the future.  

This will be an invaluable session for anyone with a stake in the longer term health of the real estate sector, providing actionable insights for market participants today, tomorrow and beyond.
