Profile

Parker Griffin has a diverse practice that covers a broad spectrum of business-oriented skills ranging from litigation to real estate to bankruptcy, with a focus on creditors’ rights. His clients include many types of businesses, including banks, servicers, real estate developers, contractors, landlords, property managers, venture startups, and healthcare owners and operators.

Parker has extensive experience in creditors’ rights, and he previously served as vice-chair and then chair of the Creditors’ Rights Subcommittee for the American Bar Association. He regularly represents all types of creditors in both bankruptcy cases and out-of-court workouts and debt restructurings, much of which involve real estate and other forms of asset-based lending. 

Parker is routinely involved in insolvency-related litigation and creditor remedies, including foreclosures, executions, garnishments, charging orders, rent interception, and avoidance actions. Parker has handled many corporate and consumer bankruptcies, including litigating issues relating to cash collateral, Section 363 sales, claims allowance, lien priority, preference and fraudulent transfer actions, stay relief, non-dischargeability, and plan confirmation. He has significant experience in all facets of receiverships, having successfully represented lenders in obtaining the appointment of receivers, receivers themselves, and third-party purchasers seeking to acquire property out of receivership sales.

Parker also has successfully navigated many out-of-court workouts that are able to avoid litigation and bankruptcy with transactional experience in negotiating, drafting and closing loan restructuring agreements, forbearance agreements, note sales, refinancings, capital infusions, and recollateralizations.

In addition to post-closing work, Parker has extensive experience in front-end acquisitions and closings involving commercial real estate, with particular emphasis on retail, medical office buildings, and senior living communities. Additionally, he regularly represents commercial landlords in a broad range of matters, including lease negotiations, unlawful detainer proceedings, ADA compliance, rent collection and tenant bankruptcies.
