Liquidation of Mid-Sized Residential Apartment Project
Kegler Brown served as counsel to the liquidating trustee for a mid-sized residential apartment project. Through the course of the representation, we discovered errors in the secured creditor’s mortgage and successfully avoided the lender’s lien on the project. We also worked through local zoning authorities to complete platting of the project and negotiated a contract with the property manager while assisting the trustee in supervising operations. Our lawyers also handled the trustee’s sale of property to a unsecured creditor under an innovative “credit bid” procedure and won court approval of the trustee’s sale proposal.
Exchange of Real Property Between U.S. Army and Private Industrial Park
Kegler Brown acted as counsel to a privately owned industrial park to acquire adjoining land from the U.S. Army through a federal exchange program in which the private party obligates itself to construct a facility at another government-owned facility and then exchanges the new facility for the property it actually desired to acquire, namely the adjoining U.S. Army-owned land. Our firm was integral to the negotiations, including navigating through the maze of government requirements for the exchange that included approval of Congress.

Beginning in 2015, Kegler Brown
provided general counsel to Nothing Into Something Real Estate (NISRE), a
faith-based non-profit housing organization in central Ohio throughout the
complicated process leading up to the groundbreaking of their 25-unit housing
complex, Cargominiums. To create this affordable, sustainable and eco-friendly
apartment building constructed from repurposed shipping containers, NISRE
relied on the advice of Kegler Brown to resolve issues in zoning and real
estate, and securing and structuring finances.
NISRE’s Cargominiums are
scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2017 and will be Ohio’s first
residential building created from shipping containers. Kegler Brown will
continue to provide legal services throughout the construction process.
