Blakeley LLP was founded by experienced attorneys with creditor’s rights, bankruptcy, and corporate litigation roots.  We created the firm with the intention to provide sophisticated and skilled legal services to corporate clients at an affordable price. 

With our main office in Orange County and satellite offices in New York City, Delaware, and Los Angeles, we offer national and international experience to clients throughout the United States and Canada while maintaining a small firm and client-friendly atmosphere.  Advancements in technology enable us to efficiently communicate with clients, make telephonic court appearances, and electronically file documents in remote locations without the need for extensive travel.

As a boutique law firm, we have been able to hone our abilities by focusing on selected practice areas, which allows us to not only stay current with the law, but become leaders in those selected fields.  With such a focused approach to our practice areas, we represent clients in matters involving both corporate bankruptcy and commercial litigation and have appeared on behalf of national and international clients in federal district and bankruptcy courts, as well as state courts, in more than half of the fifty United States.
