O’Kelly & Ernst, LLC has substantial experience representing various types of clients, whether in chapter 11 cases or out-of-court restructurings. We represent clients in matters such as plan negotiations, asset sales, lien analysis, preference actions, fraudulent conveyance litigation, stay relief, reclamation claims, claims objections and other litigation. Our range of experience enables us to effectively handle the most sophisticated matters as well as the regular bread and butter matters of an insolvency practice, to advise clients about all of the options available to them, and to help each client chose an approach that best suits the client’s particular circumstances and goals. As a boutique firm, we are comparable to the bankruptcy and insolvency departments of many national firms, but are able to provide representation in a cost effective and client-centered manner that much larger firms can seldom match.

The types of clients represented by our attorneys include, without limitation:

• Businesses as Chapter 11 debtors;
• Post-confirmation trusts and trustees;
• Equipment lessors;
• Vendors and suppliers;
• Landlords and shopping center owners;
• Lenders;
• Insurance companies;
• Asset purchasers;
• Preference and fraudulent transfer defendants;
• Corporate officers and directors; and
• Financial and other consultants.

Our practice’s approach is to develop a sound strategic understanding of each client’s circumstances upfront, as quickly as possible. We have built a reputation for being aggressive and creative on behalf of our diverse clients.  We are the go-to team for clients who need a law firm to hit the ground running–and to represent them with passion, tenacity and efficiency.
