Blakeley & 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.

We have long established a reputation for being prompt, skilled, and resourceful in resolving difficult and complex legal issues that arise in both bankruptcy and commercial litigation proceedings for industries including restaurants, food and beverage, electronics, technology and communications, paper, newspapers and publishing, apparel and textiles, banking and commercial finance, media and entertainment, manufacturing, distribution, healthcare, automotive, real estate, retail, service, and construction.

In the bankruptcy context, we have vast experience serving as counsel to Unsecured Creditors’ Committees and our attorneys are also skilled in negotiating out-of-court workouts.  In addition, we represent creditors in preference defense actions and in pursuing claims against debtors.

With respect to commercial litigation, we represent clients in contract disputes, debt collection litigation, and judgment enforcement proceedings; and we excel in pursuing actions for fraud where a debtor may have concealed assets needed for payment.  We also specialize in business disputes between corporate officers and shareholders, real estate litigation, and construction litigation (including the filing and enforcement of mechanic’s liens, stop notices, and payment bonds.)

Our clients’ cases receive personal attention that permits a relationship of trust to develop with the firm, and by focusing on a few selected practice areas we increase our efficiency and expertise which enables us to provide lower rates than any competing firm with comparable expertise.
