I’ve worked as an in-house lawyer, and so in essence I’ve been a client. I am practical and results oriented, and my perspective on when compromise is appropriate to avoid litigation risk and unnecessary costs is sharp.
Mr. Waldman’s commercial litigation practice and bankruptcy practice includes the representation of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee. His work in this area encompasses estate administration issues, significant preference and fraudulent transfer avoidance litigation, contract and collection actions, and corporate and real estate issues.
Mr. Waldman previously served as in-house counsel for a major electric and gas utility company where he was responsible for environmental compliance matters. Subsequently, he was in-house at a publicly-traded global chemical and engineered materials company, where he was Senior Litigation Counsel. There, he managed all of the company’s litigation matters on a global basis. These matters included tort cases involving chemical exposures, environmental matters, commercial disputes, antitrust claims and employment cases. Since returning to private practice in 2006, Mr. Waldman has litigated commercial cases and represented clients in bankruptcy cases and bankruptcy litigation.
