Manatt is pleased to sponsor the USC Gould School of Law 2013 Real Estate Law & Business Forum taking place on March 7, 2013 at the Private Club in Los Angeles. The Forum features a full day of learning and networking, including a keynote luncheon address, networking refreshment breaks, and a hosted evening reception.
Manatt partner F. Thomas Muller will be sharing his expertise on a panel titled "A Roundup of Key Developments over the Past Year and Important Matters to Consider Going Forward." This panel will address the following topics:
- The new California Homeowner's Bill of Rights, its likely impact on non-judicial foreclosures, and the willingness of lenders to make home mortgage loans in California
- CEQA reform legislation
- Real estate tax developments and tax changes we might expect in the coming months
- Five things borrowers need to negotiate hard in a securitized loan (now that securitization is finally coming back)
- The alpha and omega of frequently overlooked liability protection issues at the beginning and at the end of a deal, including matters as to use and capitalization of entities formed solely to sign confidentiality agreements and letters of intent, and determining when it is really safe (from a sponsor's perspective) for an SPE to liquidate and dissolve after a sale.
