Partner Gerard R. Luckman Joins the Corporate Restructuring/Bankruptcy Department of Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana LLP

February 27, 2017 — Jeffrey D. Forchelli, Managing Partner of Forchelli, Curto, Deegan, Schwartz, Mineo & Terrana LLP (the Firm), announced that Gerard R. Luckman has joined the Firm as Partner in the Corporate Restructuring/Bankruptcy department.

Mr. Luckman’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.

He has been awarded an "AV" legal ability and ethics rating by Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory – the very highest rating this nationally recognized publication has established and selected by his peers for inclusion in New York's Super Lawyers. He serves on the Board of Directors of the St. John’s University School of Law Alumni Association. Jerry is also on the board of directors and is a former President of the Long Island Chapter of the Turnaround Management Association and is a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Nassau County Bar Association.

Founded in 1976, the Firm LLP is one of Long Island's most acclaimed and distinguished law firms. Headquartered in Uniondale, NY, the Firm is conveniently located for clients in Nassau and Suffolk counties, as well as those in New York City.

The Firm employs over 60 talented attorneys who provide counsel to a broad range of clients, including national, regional and local businesses, major real estate developers and organizations, banks, insurance companies, municipalities, educational institutions, contractors, architects/engineers and individuals.
