Adjusting to the New Normal: Transacting & Managing Commercial Real Estate amid COVID-19


There has been much speculation as to the broader marketplace implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on commercial real estate values and transactions. This presentation will focus on key considerations relating to listing, evaluating, closing, and managing commercial real estate amid these COVID-related concerns.

Our expert panel will explore, through the lens of a broker, an investor/manager and a commercial real estate lawyer, a variety of relevant purchase/sale and asset management topics, including:

  • How and when to list a commercial property;
  • Evaluating opportunities and transactions in the current marketplace;
  • Managing and allocating your transaction risk by revisiting “typical” purchase agreement representations and warranties, closing conditions and boilerplate; and
  • Post-closing asset management risks, considerations, and best practices.
