JENNIFER D. RAVIELE Senior Associate
Jennifer Raviele focuses her practice on bankruptcy – specifically on representing creditors in Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court restructurings. 

A New York Metro Super Lawyers “Rising Star,” Jennifer identifies the strengths and weaknesses of a client’s position, clarifies specific goals and objectives, and executes an action plan to pursue the maximum recovery, whether through effective negotiation, litigation, or a hybrid of the two.

Jennifer has been involved in countless retail and restaurant bankruptcy cases in which she represented the owners and managers of shopping centers and addressed the full spectrum of related issues. Her experience includes handling contested assumptions, assignments, and rejections of leases, litigating claims against a debtor’s estate, arguing the contours of stub rent and related disputes over DIP financing, and issues related to a debtor’s plan of liquidation or reorganization.

In addition to her legal practice, Jennifer is involved in a variety of philanthropic, pro bono, and volunteer initiatives.  She also serves as co-chair of the Chicago chapter of Women At KDW, the firm’s affinity group for female attorneys.
