Business Law Training: Working with REITs – What Operating Businesses Need to Know

Office Locations and Webinar

Presentation Overview:

REITs continue to grow as an entity of choice in some circles. Interacting with a REIT in a business transaction can require the parties to deal with REIT-specific issues that simply do not arise in other transactions. In addition, when operating companies are seeking to monetize their real estate assets, having a REIT involved in the transaction may provide unique opportunities.We will examine the REIT basics and explore the various structures that are being used in leasing, joint ventures, and real estate monetization strategies that involve REITs.
