Biography

Peter Dodson focuses his practice on the representation of lenders in connection with bankruptcy-remote commercial mortgage loan originations, commercial mortgage backed securitizations, and asset-backed securitizations.

Peter received a B.A., two M.A.s (one in Economics), a Ph.D. in Foreign Affairs, and a J.D. from the University of Virginia. He is admitted to practice in the State of New York, the State of Virginia (inactive), and the District of Columbia.

Experience

Representative CMBS transactions include Bear Stearns' $20 billion mortgage and mezzanine financing of Blackstone's acquisition of Hilton Hotels in 2007, JPMorgan's $7 billion mortgage and mezzanine financing of TPG/Apollo's acquisition of Harrah's in 2008, Bank of America's $460 million financing of Florida East Coast Industries in 2009, JPMorgan's $2 billion mortgage financing of Centerbridge/Paulson/Blackstone's purchase of the assets of Extended Stay Hotels in 2010, and Wells Fargo's $1.4 billion mortgage and mezzanine financing of Blackstone's acquisition of the United States assets of Centro in 2011. He also represented JP Morgan in the Station Casinos bankruptcy case in connection with challenges to a propco/opco loan structure, a highly complex negotiation of a sale of the debtors' assets, and related liquidating plans, which went effective in the spring of 2011.
