(F) 312.276.0035

Jeremy Kleinman’s practice includes the representation of secured and unsecured creditors, commercial landlords, creditors’ committees, trustees and other clients in all stages of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. He also has extensive experience litigating preference and fraudulent conveyance avoidance actions, claim disputes and other bankruptcy-related disputes. Recently, Jeremy confirmed a Chapter 11 plan on behalf of the official committee of unsecured creditors in the Chapter 11 bankruptcy case of a local snack food manufacturer. Although the debtor in that case had few liquid assets at the time of the bankruptcy filing, creditors obtained a 52% recovery through the committee’s pursuit of litigation against certain insiders of the debtor.

Before joining FrankGecker, Jeremy served as a law clerk to the Honorable John D. Schwartz, Bankruptcy Judge, Northern District of Illinois and served as an associate at Quarles & Brady LLP and D’Ancona & Pflaum, LLC.

Words and Music

In addition to the Bankruptcy Code, I am currently reading The Signal and the Noise by Nate Silver and greatly enjoyed Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Jon Meacham.My musical tastes are all over the map, as I enjoy blues, rock, funk, and New Orleans-style jazz (my recent wedding in New Orleans might have something to do with that). My favorite artists include Pearl Jam, Jimi Hendrix and Metallica.
