Miami partner Michelle Hendler, Co-Chair of Shutts & Bowen’s Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy Practice Group, discussed bankruptcy concerns, foreclosure moratoriums and litigation trends in a Q&A with the Daily Business Review.
During her interview, Michelle discussed how bankruptcy-related concerns are increasing to create more client demand; how foreclosures are affecting her practice; major litigation trends she’s seeing; and the biggest challenges in taking on foreclosure and real estate cases during these times.
“My lending clients tried to work collaboratively with borrowers to mitigate loss and develop a suitable exit strategy for all,” she said. “Fast forward to today, there has been an uptick in commercial foreclosures, and we are aggressively moving them forward through the courts.”
Michelle also discussed the biggest challenges on foreclosure and real estate cases this last year.
