Bernie Kornberg is litigator with over a decade of experience handling bankruptcy, creditor’s rights, and commercial litigation matters. No matter the engagement, he brings an aggressive, intelligent, and cost-effective approach to representing his clients.
Bernie’s bankruptcy and creditor’s right practice focuses on representing lenders, commercial landlords and lessors, real estate developers, and business creditors in state, federal, and bankruptcy court. Bernie represents creditors seeking to recover misappropriated property or funds and defendants when wrongfully charged with failure to pay a debt, fraudulent transfers, or related litigation. He also handles workouts and forbearances to avoid litigation and bring a contract back into compliance. Bernie has also developed a specialty in handling bankruptcy appeals and has been the prevailing attorney of record in published appeals in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal and Bankruptcy Appellate Panel.
In addition, Bernie is currently the chair of the Legislative Subcommittee of the Insolvency Law Committee of the California Lawyer’s Association. There, he works with other insolvency professionals in California to advocate for changes in California and Federal law that will benefit the insolvency community as a whole.
Bernie’s commercial litigation practice focuses on representing companies and individuals in complex business disputes including breaches of commercial contracts, intellectual property disputes, and real estate and related matters in federal and state courts.
When he’s not busy being a lawyer, Bernie enjoys trying new restaurants in San Francisco with his wife, hiking the many trails in the city with their terrier mutt, Briney, and trying to tire his son out at the many great parks and playgrounds in the City.
