Hilco Real Estate initially worked with J.Crew and its advisors as part of its financial restructuring process. Hilco handled landlord discussions on hundreds of sites in a variety of retail settings (regional malls, outlets, and other centers and street sites), across 40+ states and Canada. In negotiating term shortening and other lease restructuring, significant lease savings was secured for the company, along with critical lease term control. Hilco’s efforts were instrumental in creating necessary store-level profitability and positioning the company for long-term growth. Post-bankruptcy, Hilco was retained as an adjunct real estate advisor, handling most strategic landlord negotiations for the existing leased store portfolio.
