Camille J. Iurillo

Camille J. Iurillo concentrates her practice on complex bankruptcy litigation, business litigation and business law. She is known for her dedication to her clients and their causes by bringing her smart, tough and persistent focus to all of her cases.

Ms. Iurillo represents professionals, businesses and business owners struggling with financial challenges by advising them on their insolvency alternatives, including bankruptcy reorganizations, other insolvency proceedings or non-bankruptcy consensual workouts. In addition, her creditors' rights and bankruptcy litigation practice focuses on guiding each client through the complex bankruptcy process in order to maximize recovery or achieve a success result in the case. Ms. Iurillo also represents debtors in Chapter 7, 13 and 11 cases. Having a strong background representing both creditors and debtors provides her with an insider's view on how each side thinks and strategizes.

Ms. Iurillo also represents institutional lenders, private lenders, investor groups and borrowers, including commercial and residential investors and developers, in commercial and residential foreclosures. As with her bankruptcy practice, representing both lenders and borrowers provides Ms. Iurillo with a unique understanding of the litigation and foreclosure process, including the motivations of all parties.

Throughout her career, Ms. Iurillo has maintained an active commercial litigation practice, including representation of publicly and privately held companies, involving matters such as contract disputes, obtaining injunctive relief, fraud, sale of goods and services under the Uniform Commercial Code, fraudulent transfer litigation and collections. Leveraging the knowledge she has gained after over twenty years as a trial lawyer, Ms. Iurillo also offers her clients transactional services such as business formation and incorporation, employment agreements, commercial leases and asset purchase agreements.

Ms. Iurillo has been selected as a "Top Lawyer" by Tampa Bay Magazine and named as one of Florida's Legal Elite by Florida Trend magazine. She is a past president of the St. Petersburg Bar Association and has given back to the community by serving on the board of the Community Law Program, Brookwood and other charitable organizations.
