Travis Lenkner, Keller Lenkner: Travis is the managing partner of Keller Lenkner, which represents plaintiffs in complex litigation at the trial and appellate levels. He and his two partners at Keller Lenkner previously co-founded the litigation finance firm Gerchen Keller Capital, which they grew to more than $1.3 billion in assets under management before selling the firm to Burford Capital in 2016. Before launching Gerchen Keller, Travis was a senior counsel at the Chicago headquarters of The Boeing Co. and a litigation and appellate attorney in the New York and Washington offices of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. He was a law clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy and for Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He earned his J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law. Travis Lenkner.

As founders of one of the first and biggest litigation funding companies, the trio behind what was once Gerchen Keller Capital (GKC) became known for bringing financial innovation to a staid profession’s books.

Now, they’re taking on the opioid crisis by putting a new twist on an en vogue type of litigation: Suing manufacturers and distributors for allegedly causing higher insurance premiums.

Adam Gerchen, Ashley Keller and Travis Lenkner quietly launched Keller Lenkner, a plaintiff-side litigation firm, earlier this year following their departure from daily operations at Burford Capital Ltd., which purchased GKC for $160 million in late 2016.
