Yankwitt LLP’s Bankruptcy Litigation practice applies the firm’s high-stakes, complex litigation experience to the prosecution and defense of claims in adversary proceedings arising in bankruptcy. Critical to our success in bankruptcy matters is the depth of our federal court experience: All of our Westchester-based attorneys are former federal prosecutors and/or clerked for federal judges, a combination rarely found outside New York City. Our lawyers have litigated bankruptcy-related matters such as:

  • Fraudulent Transfers
  • Preferential Transfers
  • Directors & Officers Liability Claims
  • Professional Malpractice Claims
  • Successor Liability
  • Dischargeablity

We are aggressive litigators who are always ready to try cases, and we are often brought in for just that purpose on the eve of trial. At the same time, we are sensitive to the emotional and financial toll of bankruptcy and related litigation. We emphasize smart, lean staffing and cost-effective litigation strategies, and we strive to minimize our clients’ concerns with honesty, transparency, and open and frequent communication.

Finally, for our clients who are exploring bankruptcy, we partner with top bankruptcy boutiques in Westchester and New York City to provide seamless service and support in challenging times.
