Gerard R. Luckman heads the firm’s Bankruptcy & 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 and bankruptcy. 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 an out of court 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 litigation or a bankruptcy filing.

Jerry has been awarded an “AV” legal ability and ethics rating by Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory — the highest rating this nationally recognized publication has established. He has also been selected to New York Metro Super Lawyers lists (Bankruptcy: Business) annually since 2014.

Prior to and during law school, Jerry worked as a financial manager at two major corporations. That financial background and experience help shape Jerry’s practical approach to practicing law.
