History

springstreetIn January 1952, Irving Sulmeyer began his practice in a tiny office on the second floor of the aging Continental Building at 408 South Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. The noise of the streetcars on the steel tracks below came through the open window. He was his own receptionist, telephone operator and secretary. Taking whatever business came his way, he was asked by a friend if he could help his father save his struggling zipper business. Mr. Sulmeyer said he wasn’t sure, but he would try. Thus, he filed his first bankruptcy case, a Chapter 11 reorganization case for Union Slide Fastener Company. A year later, with a lot of help from the Los Angeles bankruptcy bar, the company emerged successfully from reorganization proceedings and continued in business.

Bankruptcy Judge Benno Brink invited Mr. Sulmeyer to serve as a bankruptcy trustee in his court. While serving as a trustee, he began representing ever-increasing numbers of poor wage earners in bankruptcy cases, introducing Chapter 13 (wage earner adjustments) to Southern California. Mr. Sulmeyer became involved in larger and larger business bankruptcy cases, representing debtors, trustees, creditors, and committees of creditors. In 1960, he hired a new attorney, Arnold Kupetz, who had recently completed a stint with the Judge Advocates General as a member of the Air Force, and what is now SulmeyerKupetz was born.

With locations in both Los Angeles and Orange County, SulmeyerKupetz has become one of the premier financial restructuring and litigation firms.
