Neal focuses his practice in the areas of business litigation, business reorganizations, workouts, debt restructuring, and business bankruptcy.

Neal's business litigation experience has included the successful trial and arbitration of cases involving a broad spectrum of issues, including but not limited to the Uniform Commercial Code, “lender liability” law, fraudulent conveyance avoidance, preference avoidance, partnership disputes, state and federal securities law issues, business torts, and contract law. These trials have resulted in overwhelmingly favorable outcomes and a significant number of reported decisions from the United States District Court and United States Court of Appeals. Neal has significant, successful jury trial experience. In the appellate arena, he has argued cases to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Circuits and a number of state appellate courts, including the Supreme Court of Arizona. Within the past twenty-four months alone, Neal has briefed and argued two successful appeals in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

In recent years, Neal has also represented a large, national insurance company in multiple highly disputed rate regulation cases. Working closely with expert actuaries and economists, he has tried two of these cases to administrative tribunals in the states of Alabama and California.

His diverse insolvency and bankruptcy practice experience has involved the representation of secured and unsecured creditors, creditors' committees, debtors, trustees, liquidating trusts, lessors, and purchasers of stock or assets of insolvent entities. He has also served as both a liquidating trustee for a corporation with assets valued in excess of $100 million and, on several occasions, as an assignee for the benefit of creditors.

Neal’s practice is truly national. During his career, he has appeared in the federal and state courts, and regulatory agencies, of more than 40 states and the Territory of Puerto Rico. He currently is representing clients in pending cases or negotiations in Delaware, Nevada, and California, as well as Illinois.

Neal was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy in 1997, at the time of induction of the College’s eighth class. He was only the fourteenth representative of the Seventh Circuit at the time of his induction.
