Uniondale, NY, November 14, 2017 — Gerard R. Luckman participated on a panel for a workshop titled, “Chapter 11 Primer: The Basics of What You Need to Know,” sponsored by the Chapter 11 Lawyers Advisory Committee United States Bankruptcy Court Eastern District of New York.
Luckman is a partner in the Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring practice group. Jerry’s pragmatic approach and experience has led him to represent virtually every type of client in a financial workout or chapter 11 bankruptcy case, including clients involved in distressed debt transactions, asset acquisitions, and asset sales outside of bankruptcy; as well as debtors, creditors’ committees, equity holders, landlords, and secured and unsecured creditors in chapter 11 proceedings. He is widely regarded as a leading practitioner in the field of corporate restructuring. With businesses filing for chapter 11, Jerry can take the client from the initial filing of the bankruptcy petition, through the management of the case, and ultimately confirm a plan of reorganization or liquidation. In representing clients in a work out, Jerry’s hands-on approach assists the client in negotiating and executing the restructuring of their financial obligations while avoiding the uncertainty associated with a chapter 11 filing.
