CBRE’s Occupier Restructuring & Disposition Services group advises retailers on how to best navigate their ‘distressed’ real estate obligations. We also assist debtors, creditors, lenders, private equity sponsors, law firms, and restructuring advisors. Understanding a firm’s real estate footprint—and the intricacies of strategy repositioning or quick execution—is critical, particularly when navigating dispositions, rightsizing, restructuring or bankruptcy.

From the first meeting, CBRE experts work with you hand-in-hand to understand the real estate conversation and help plan the next move. What follows is a long-term partnership with a tailored team of unique talent—handpicked from our global network—dedicated to helping you optimize your real estate footprint and backed by CBRE’s global platform of resources and professionals.
