Pryor & Mandelup was formed in 1987 by
Robert L. Pryor and A. Scott Mandelup
For more than 32 years, Pryor & Mandelup has been providing comprehensive and compassionate legal advice tailored to the specific needs of its diverse client base.
Pryor & Mandelup and its founding partners have each been accorded an “AV”® rating from Martindale-Hubbell, in both legal ability and professional ethics. The Firm has also been named to The Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers by Martindale-Hubbell.
The unique blend of the talent of its founders is reflected by the approach of Pryor & Mandelup to the law today. Because the firm has concentrations in both bankruptcy and litigation, it specially crafts solutions to business and individual problems in a way that cannot be achieved by a firm concentrating in only one or the other.
A Preeminent Bankruptcy & Litigation Law Firm
Pryor & Mandelup has established itself in the legal community as a preeminent bankruptcy and litigation firm, using our specialized legal knowledge and extensive practical experience, coupled with highly personalized service, to meet our clients’ needs.
The firm commonly represents its clients in workouts, reorganizations and liquidations, creditors’ rights disputes, distressed business transactions, and general commercial litigation matters. Its practice includes related areas of corporate, contract, and real estate law.
The firm’s clients include bankruptcy trustees, creditor committees, secured and unsecured lenders, trade creditors, equipment lessors, franchisees, real estate developers, landlords, tenants, and debtors-in-possession. The firm has an established record of excellence in both creditor and debtor-side bankruptcy representation. It has been a perennial leader in the filing of corporate Chapter 11 reorganizations in the Eastern District of New York.
The firm also regularly represents individuals in complex personal bankruptcy matters as well as related areas such as foreclosure, guarantees, lien-law rights, veil-piercing litigation, claw back litigation, and shareholder disputes.
