Michael J. Goldberg

Michael specializes in business bankruptcy, financial restructuring and business and commercial real estate transactions. In his 35 years of practice, he has represented a broad spectrum of clients in insolvency matters, including debtors, creditors’ committees, trustees, assignees, landlords, secured and unsecured creditors, and investors. He has also served as counsel to purchasers and sellers of industrial, office and multifamily real estate, with a particular expertise in real estate financing. He is a frequent lecturer on bankruptcy topics, particularly on the impact of bankruptcy issues on real estate transactions. Twice ranked as one of New England’s “Top 100” lawyers, Mr. Goldberg is a Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy and is rated as a leading bankruptcy lawyer in Massachusetts by the following: Chambers USA – America’s Leading Business Lawyers, since 2006, and Super Lawyers Massachusetts – Bankruptcy, since 2004.

What Michael most enjoys about his career… What I most enjoy about bankruptcy practice is the challenge of convincing a multitude of competing constituencies, all of whom have suffered financial losses, that their common interest is in a negotiated resolution permitting the continuation of a renewed business enterprise – and the rewarding and sometimes surprising collaborations that result.
