Biography

John Leon was admitted to the New Jersey bar in 1981. He joined Subranni Zauber LLC in 2008, after practicing law for ten years as a partner with a national law firm. John’s practice is concentrated in bankruptcy law, debtor-creditor law, and commercial litigation. He has substantial experience litigating cases in bankruptcy courts in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, and in New Jersey state courts. John has represented individuals, small businesses, public companies, creditor committees, commercial landlords, and shopping centers, as well as several national banks and other institutional lenders. His litigation experience includes suits to obtain money judgments, mortgage foreclosures, replevin suits, business valuation disputes, preference cases, fraudulent transfer actions in state courts and bankruptcy courts, and numerous bankruptcy court adversary proceedings. John has also represented clients involved in appeals from decisions of bankruptcy courts and New Jersey trial courts.

John has served as lead counsel in cases involving the enforcement and restructuring of multimillion dollar mortgage and asset-based loans, and complex multimillion dollar leveraged buyout fraudulent transfer litigation. He was litigation counsel to the Bondholders Committee in the Claridge Casino bankruptcy ($85 million claim), successfully resolved a nine million dollar preference claim in the bankruptcy case of Hayes Microcomputer Products (inventor of the computer modem), and represented several preference claim defendants in the Enron Corp. bankruptcy.

John also has substantial experience in commercial real estate matters, and in the negotiation and documentation of loan transactions and restructurings.






John has conducted seminars on bankruptcy topics for attorneys and clients, and previously served as an adjunct professor of Business Law at Glassboro State College. He is a 1978 magna cum laude graduate of Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) and received his J.D. from Rutgers University in 1981. While at Rutgers, John was a member and Associate Editor of the Rutgers Law Journal, and served as an intern to United States District Court Judge Stanley Brotman. Upon graduation, John served as a law clerk to New Jersey Superior Court Judge Rudolph J. Rossetti. John is admitted to practice in all New Jersey and Pennsylvania state courts, the United States District Courts for the District of New Jersey and the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court. He participates as a Master in New Jersey’s Bankruptcy Inn of Court program, and serves as a speaker for the Financial Literacy Project of the New Jersey Bankruptcy Lawyers Foundation.
