Keith Patrick Banner is a partner in Greenberg Glusker’s Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring Group.

Keith focuses on business insolvency and distressed transactions with relevant experience in a variety of industries, including retail, entertainment, technology and real estate. Providing a calm and understanding approach to what often amounts to a rather tumultuous time for a business, Keith helps guide companies through a myriad of insolvency solutions that are appropriate for the particular circumstance, including out-of-court transactions, such as the refinance of complex loan facilities or an assignment for the benefit of creditors (“ABC”); or through the bankruptcy court in a chapter 11 reorganization or chapter 7 liquidation.

In addition to representing distressed businesses, Keith also represents bankruptcy trustees in chapter 11 and chapter 7 cases, navigating through complex investigations, asset sales, contentious litigation and the variety of other aspects of such bankruptcies. Keith is further skilled in bankruptcy-related litigation, including fraudulent transfer and preference recovery actions. 

Beyond his bankruptcy practice, Keith also has significant experience in a variety of corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions and private equity investments. 

Prior to joining the firm, Keith served as the judicial law clerk to the Honorable Peter H. Carroll, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for the Central District of California. Prior to clerking, Keith practiced at an AM Law 100 firm and a boutique insolvency firm, both located in Los Angeles. This diversity of experience provides Keith with a broad perspective and the tools for a company’s successful rehabilitation.
