Throwing Tenants Off Spanish Peaks 



Honorable Neil Bason, Bankruptcy Judge, C.D. Cal.

Ivan Gold, Esq., Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP

Michael St. James, Esq., St. James Law, P.C.

  • What can a tenant do to protect itself from eviction and loss of its leasehold?
  • Is Chapter 11 a good strategy to shed legacy leases which impair the value of a shopping center?
  • Can the tenant solve the problem by seeking “adequate protection?”
