Michael Foreman has issued or negotiated virtually all types of bankruptcy and insolvency-related transactional issues, including the most-frequently requested transactional legal opinions regarding bankruptcy law.  He has been the lead negotiator in complex bankruptcy sales and reorganizations.  He has designed, negotiated and contested bankruptcy sales and auctions, both under Bankruptcy Code Section 363 and via plan confirmation.  Michael Foreman also has been the lead litigator in all types of bankruptcy court litigation, at all stages of the out-of-court and in-court processes.

Where a case under the Bankruptcy Code or foreign insolvency law has not been commenced, Foreman Law PLLC helps the client determine how its objectives can be achieved in and out of court.  The issues to be considered are considerable and complex, demanding a seasoned lawyer with Michael Foreman’s vast experience.  Where the matter arises in the context of an ongoing bankruptcy case, he has the bankruptcy negotiation and litigation skill sets needed to navigate through a decidedly different legal landscape.  “Every restructuring and bankruptcy matter involves a complex synthesis of legal theory and prior case law, a vast array of business, financial, economic, operational and inter-personal issue, and myriad negotiation and litigation strategies and procedures.”
