Deborah K. Ebner, FactorLaw Join Forces

CHICAGO — Effective January 2016, the highly regarded bankruptcy and workout lawyer Deborah K. Ebner of the Law Office of Deborah Kanner Ebner has forged an Of Counsel relationship with the Law Office of William J. Factor, Ltd. FactorLaw, formed in 2009, continues its growth as a leading debtor/creditor and litigation boutique in the Chicago market, with nine lawyers in its Chicago and Northbrook offices. Ebner practices from her offices at 11 E. Adams Street in Chicago.

Ebner joined the Illinois bar in 1981 and has served as a federal bankruptcy trustee since 1983. She is AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell, has administered thousands of bankruptcy cases through her practice and as a trustee, and has an unusually practical, candid and straightforward approach to the practice of bankruptcy law. She is a well-respected resource for practitioners in the legal community, who send their closest friends and family members to her for legal assistance in the field of bankruptcy. She is lauded by her clients for her bankruptcy “brilliance,” “intellectual integrity,” “depth and wisdom,” and “ability to cut through the bureaucracy of the bankruptcy system in a cost-effective manner.”

FactorLaw, with offices at 1363 Shermer Road in Northbrook and 105 W. Madison Street in Chicago, is dedicated to bankruptcy and commercial litigation. Its founder, William J. Factor — like Ebner — is AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell and has been selected as a Leading Lawyer by Law Bulletin Publishing Company in both individual bankruptcy and commercial bankruptcy and workouts. Factor joined the Illinois bar in 1991. He is a graduate of DePaul University College of Law (with High Honors) and the University of Chicago. Prior to starting FactorLaw, Factor was a partner in the bankruptcy practice of a large Chicago-based law firm.

The new affiliation between Ebner and FactorLaw results from the synergy they noticed when working together previously. Ebner and Factor pride themselves on providing sophisticated representation and tremendous value to clients at a reasonable cost. Both professionals are results-oriented and practical, focusing on creative solutions that are appropriate for the situation at hand. They also offer personalized service and attention for the debtors and creditors whom they represent.

“In addition to Bill and Sara Lorber, FactorLaw has a very talented group of young, emerging, sophisticated lawyers,” said Ebner. “It provides an unusual breadth and depth of representation in the area of bankruptcy and commercial litigation, and I hope to be able to help train the next generation of very sharp lawyers at the firm.”

Both Factor and Ebner belong to a number of professional associations, including the American Bankruptcy Institute, the Commercial Law League of America, the Turnaround Management Association, the Chicago Bar Association and the Illinois State Bar Association.

“We welcome Deborah’s integrity and her sophisticated talents and we believe we share important core values related to the delivery of legal services. We also look forward in the years ahead to this affiliation — she will help to expand the cutting-edge, service that FactorLaw offers debtors and creditors,” said Factor. “Clients who seek our assistance or who are referred to us will certainly remain in good hands.”
