Gabriel Aizenberg

Gabriel Aizenberg is a commercial litigator representing corporate and individual plaintiffs and defendants in complex proceedings in federal, bankruptcy and state courts and arbitration forums. He focuses his practice on a variety of litigation areas, including fraud, contractual disputes, business torts, breach of fiduciary duty, claims of violations of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, trade secret misappropriation and government contracts.

Gabriel has significant experience in post-judgment proceedings and asset-recovery litigation. He has represented clients in veil piercing litigation, litigation overcoming the asset-protection features of both foreign and domestic trusts, asset turnover and tracing proceedings, and proceedings to freeze assets both here and abroad. Gabriel has been a Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Law School, where he has taught a full, nine-session course entitled "Show Me the Money: Post-Judgment Proceedings and Asset Recovery," addressing the collections process from the pre-complaint stage through post-judgment proceedings. Gabriel has also lectured at the University of Chicago Law School on Litigation Planning and Remedies in Contracts.

Gabriel also litigates bid protests and advises clients on issues relating to the award and performance of state and local government contracts, responses to competitive bid requests and requests for proposals, terms of contracts, and compliance with minority and women owned business requirements.

Gabriel is committed to pro bono work and service in the community. He is a member of the advisory board of the Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University, a private, non-profit organization established in 1980 by survivors, their children and friends to preserve and promote awareness of the reality of the Holocaust; assists the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, the organization responsible for negotiating for and administering the disbursement of compensation for injuries inflicted upon victims of Nazi persecution; and previously served as outside general counsel for litigation matters for a local, not-for-profit private school. He also has represented several federal prisoners in civil rights cases in district courts and the court of appeals.
