Webinar Title: Distressed M&A in the Real Estate Industry

With economic downturn caused by COVID-19 impacting the real estate sector, dealmakers should prepare to conduct transactions in a prolonged distressed environment. Jeff Anapolsky and Gleeson Van Riet, co-founders of Crossroads Strategic Advisors, will be sharing insights on distressed M&A with a special focus on the real estate industry.

Mr. Anapolsky is the co-author of the definitive book on this topic: The Art of Distressed M&A: Buying, Selling, and Financing Troubled & Insolvent Companies, which he uses to teach MBAs at Rice University.  Mr. Van Riet served as CFO of two NYSE-listed companies and previously focused on private equity sponsors as an investment banker.

Recent clients include: restaurants, childcare centers, healthcare practices, owner-operated industrial, multi-family, parking garages, leisure, and real estate developers.

  • 3.       When does a pre-bankruptcy transaction create fraudulent transfer risk
