Itkin, a Partner in Sklar Kirsh’s Bankruptcy practice, is known as a problem solver. She has restructured billions of dollars of debt and forged resolutions in both numerous complex Chapter 11 cases and restructurings outside of the courtroom. Acknowledged by The New York Times for her compassion, Itkin leads new, healthy and distressed companies and high-profile individuals, to negotiate, and resolve without litigation if possible, their most critical financial and personal issues, including those impacted by the fragile economic straits of others. Itkin has protected the claims and interests of debtors, creditors, lenders, equity, boards, principals, purchasers, and trustees in a variety of corporate restructurings, bankruptcies and out of court resolutions involving most industries, including victims of fraud and Ponzi scheme matters.
Itkin’s excellence in complex matters earned her recognition, among many others, as a Woman of Influence by the Los Angeles Business Journal in 2021. Chambers USA has listed her in consecutive years as one of the country’s leading lawyers in bankruptcy and she is repeatedly recognized among Super Lawyers Top 50 Women lawyers and Top 100 lawyers in Southern California.
