She also has significant experience with hotel loan financing and has worked extensively with major national franchisors, including the negotiation of over 50 franchise agreements, on behalf of franchisees.
Q & A
How has your experience in the hotel sector been valuable to your clients?
Hotels are unique assets which require servicers to address multiple considerations as either a lender or owner. By working extensively with each franchisor in these capacities, I have helped our clients cultivate deep relationships and establish protocols to foster efficiency in the handling of future hospitality loans and properties.
How did the last downturn impact your practice?
My broad experience with a large number of foreclosures, loan workouts and restructurings enables me to fully appreciate the needs of servicers when faced with assets struggling to perform in order to meet their obligations to lenders. By gaining an awareness of these issues, I am more aptly suited to prevent these same problems from recurring during a future downturn.
What makes the hospitality sector unique?
With hotel transactions, you are not just dealing with the lender-borrower role found in office and retail properties. I have a strong understanding of both an operating business and the role that a franchise plays in that business.
