MANY THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS
Here's the team from law firm Hartman Simons, which sponsored yesterday's Breakfast & Schmooze. Here's managing partner Bob Simons and attorneys Lori Kilberg (also CREW Atlanta's president-elect), Summey Orr, Keith Wilson, Benno Rothschild, Charlie Brake, and Gil Burstiner. They're on the front lines, so we asked Summey what he's seeing: "A lot of the good deals out there are under the radar, like opportunities to buy the debt at a reduced rate and to get a property through the commercial paper." And more investor and lending clients have come to Hartman Simons for help in navigating that complex process, which is unfamiliar territory to many. Distressed debt buyers may have more options, he says, but the process and the risks are different from what clients worked their way through back in the "good ol' days."
We'd also like to say gracias to sponsor Hitt Contracting. Here's VP Roger Delaney and project manager Shaw Overstreet.
