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 litigation areas such as 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 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 also litigates bid protests and related Freedom of Information Act disputes 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 M/WBE and DBE business requirements. Most recently, Gabriel has assisted clients in protests related to contracts awarded by agencies of the State of Illinois.
Gabriel is committed to pro bono work and community service, working directly with non-profit organizations such as the Holocaust Educational Foundation of Northwestern University, established to promote awareness of the reality of the Holocaust, as well as the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, which handles the disbursement of compensation for injuries inflicted upon victims of Nazi persecution. He has also previously served as outside general counsel for a non-profit private school.
