  CASE STUDY HIGHLIGHT
2013 Griffin-American Healthcare REIT II - Innovative Three-Party Deal Restructuring Satisfies All Involved 

Arnall Golden Gregory represented Health Care REIT II, a major health care REIT, in a complicated, multiparty deal involving the purchase of a portfolio of skilled-nursing facilities and, simultaneously, the leasing of the facilities to a new operator. An operator had the property and business assets under contract but preferred buying only the business assets and leasing the real estate from a third party. However, that risked triggering a hefty transfer tax. AGG structured the deal in such a way that the transfer tax liability was avoided and the buyer's right to acquire the assets was preserved. More >
